They are as frustrated as I am. Like Ed says below, it is really a computer networking issue, not a car issue. We have some mega-feelers out there right now. We are going to order a brand new BCM and get is flashed in the most stripped down mode possible with the SST VIN. That way we should be able to get it running again and have a backup unit.

Ha, pretty funny A. The only reason we picked 14 psi is because anything above that is just worse wheel spin.

I hope it is just the SST because of the number of computers that talk to each other. Literally we don't need the BCM to run the car if it lets us. The engine is a stand alone controller as is the transmission. We did that because there was no other way to support the 16 injectors with the octane-on-demand system. I am sure the AMS-1000 will work fine with the factory PCM/ECM.

You hit the nail on the head with that one ED. :bangdesk:

We did a double check on the connections and the AMS-1000 is definitely on a stand alone circuit. Do not know if that is a good thing or bad thing yet. Good in that it was wired right. Bad in that it does not make a lot of sense why it would set off the BCM and put it into transport mode.

Thanks for the vote of confidence. Wish you were around. Bet we'd figure it out faster...

That is in drive with rpm in the lower range. Sounds a bit different at high rpm.

They are trying to find the permanent solution to the BCM, but I have it scheduled for pickup next week regardless. So it will be heading back to Florida this month.

Bruce I think your car needs realigned.

Tell them to get the steering wheel straight.

Actually you are correct. It has not been realigned after the suspension changes so it is not centered. You have a sharp eye...

PQ has learned my trick for finding problems with everything. I think I've passed on my anti-King Midas touch.

Well, it's from my own experience. I just had my car aligned on Thursday and it STILL isnt' as straight as it should be. Even after having them pay extra attention to it. Must not be easy to do.

Bruce I have been following your thread for a while and your car is awesome..

I would die to have a nelson racing engine in my camaro and 1 of the toys you own...

My suggestion about the BCM is very simple. Skip the middle man and go to the manufacturer.

Obviously there are users on this site that work for GM, have one of them make a phone call to the programmers of the BCM at GM headquarters and see if they help you program out limp mode.

You may have to fly them down, or something but I think it is 100% for someone that programmed it to remove the security logic/ limp mode. But they need to know how it was programmed to do so.
