I was stumbling around the GP forums and I found this:

http://www.hptuners.com/forum/showthread.php?28206-How-to-Tune-96-Grand-Prix-with-HP-Tuner

In theory it should work with our cars, right? Looks like the Lumina shared it's PCM with pretty much every other '97 car out there..... It would add a lot of tables for us '96 guys using DHP, not to mention the ability to use HPT. We would have to make sure to get a PCM out of a car with a 60E though because top swap people have had issues with 65E PCMs controlling 60Es. The only issue I can see is anything boost related which may or may not be solvable. I just checked and I have the correct wiring as described in the write up. I'm scrolling through '97 Monte Carlo bins, and even though they didn't get the supercharger until '98 they still have the supercharger tables.... Weird..

Picked up 2 Lumina PCMs today, out of a 3.1 and 3.4. Would somebody be nice enough to post the wiring schematics for both? The ones I found make them look identical, except certain PCMs just didn't use certain wires. Should just have to change the transmission type in TinyTuner.....

Interesting fact of the day: Some 96/97 cars show timing in the negatives when you use DHP/HPT to scan, but when you modify the tables it's all in the positives.
