what to do?...
i put a motor that had been recently rebuilt from a parts truck (91
chevy k2500 ld) in my 92 gmc k1500 and it doesn't run quite right... i
found out from the person who rebuilt the motor that he had put an RV
cam in it but never changed anything computerwise... he had told me he
was told their should be a chip to change the perameters installed in
the computer when installing the RV cam in a fuel injected engine...
but i plan on modifying my trucks engine more later on and would need
to modify the computer once again when i do this... i don't want to be
buying all kinds of chips for my trucks computer or soon enough i'd
have more money into just computer contoling than i would in the truck
itself... a friends told me i should get a diablo burner so i can just
reprogram it as i modify it... but i couldn't figure out what i needed
when searching for it and i know their has to be another company that
makes suck a product... and i have no idea where to start with trying
to set "perameters" manually with a computer... i need some help
here?!?!?!... thanks, matt

well i guess what i'm asking is what the other companies are and where
to find them... and i don't have a clue where to start when making
custom changes to the computer, like where to set perameters an
such... or would they be able to tell me what to do the companies
I guess it depends on how involved you want to get. There are
companies that will burn a custom chip for you, such as tbichips.com.
You may be better off going with one of them. First thing would be to
find out as much info as you can about the cam. Another good resource
for stuff like this especially if you want to burn your own chips is
RV cam? Exactly what are the specific numbers? Duration, seperation, lift.
A RV type cam generally refers to a cam designed for low end tq. Your ecm
should have no problems with a cam that provides a vaccum similar to the
original, you generally end up with problems from cam's with a lopey idle.
Run it, give your ecm time to readjust blm's, it may take a hundred or so
miles but you should be able to run "RV" cam. If you find you still need a
chip go to www.moates.net and get up to speed. You can get the needed
software for free and a generic prom burner from eBay for practically
nothing or buy a burner setup from moates. Either way you will spend less to
burn your own than you would for a custom chip. Then you also end up with
the added benefit of learning how your ECM really works. Makes future
problem solving easier.
