Any one out there reprogram computers for the 1996 cavi for racing purposes?.............Thanks
it is the untunable year. youll need to switch to a 97 ecu and engine harness. its all plug and play for the 2.4 and not too much is different for the 2.2. the 97 can be tuned with hptuners.
What about a 1995? Can anyone tune that if given specs?
I wasnt thinking before, its a race car so obd2 emissions dont count lol. you could replace the harness and put a 95 ecu in also. there are ways to tune that ecu like you would with hptuners through software or im pretty sure people can burn chips for them also.
97 is easier to tune than 95 since 95 tuning involves pulling the pcm, opening it up, yanking a chip, erasing the chip, flashing the chip, and then putting it all back together. Where as hpt involves plugging 2 things in, turning the key and clicking the mouse.

alright guys here it comes , since the 97 computer is modable , dose anyone know if you can swap the computers back and forth between the older to newer car or are the plugs different ??
witch stock computer has the best power tune in it ?
are they inter changeable ?
A select few 96 cars came with the correct plug to hook up the 97 ecu without the harness swap but they are far and few between. As far as a stock tune there probably isn't too much diffrence between the 2.
Is there a pic of the 97 connector? That would be helpful
