I wouldn't say it is a comparison,both are respected and only 1 is a site sponsor.
They just both got mention in the same thread.

As for the other vendor mentioned-he has his own forum with lots of KOOL AID!

but he is still very much sane compared to the engineering excellence of a certain steak sauce themed company.

Yes Ace, well said. Kennedy bailed me out over the phone and with the right parts in 2008 and, had I not met and made friends with Bill on the Salt Flats in 2009 (and ended up being his crew chief)....

But John is a site sponsor, and he's often on here for the members. From my short experiences and the experiences posted by otheres, he is top notch and has proven his knowledge time and time again in competitions.

Walt's record speaks for itself...

This whole thing makes no sense. You're hurt, out of work, pinched for money, sold your Caddy to pay for the project, and yet you'll keep the core and screw yourself out of $200 to spite not only Heath but another member here on The Place?
So no, thank YOU.
While if that is the case I am very grateful and if that said person comes forward I will send my core to them FREE, But I don't understand why you try and make out I'm the bad guy? and giving me the guilt trip saying I'm holding someone elses progress up out of spite..

seems you've just cherry picked through this thread, ignoring my concerns, answers and replies and turned a personal sensible choice into a big deal

Fact is $200 is a fair amount to me right now BUT why the hell would I put myself in this exact same situation again by using Heath for the next batch of items?

Besides it seems the cores are available going on what another member said e.g Rock auto sells rebuilt ones ( standard, ac delco, delphi) starting at $109.00.

I'm neutral and a fanboy to no vendor so just saying how I see it, right or wrong... I'm not the best at making choices due to this M.E/CFS illness I have.. Hell I still have to think what my 15 week old daughters name is so forgive me if I don't explain things well enough in a public truck forum..

In future I think I'll remain a reader on this forum as it seems I'm a outcast...

But thank you to the people that did help, advise and assist in this matter

ShaneVanessaUK,

Do not believe for a moment that you are an outcast on this forum! It's simply not true.

There's a general tendency to have a bit too much expression of opinion and venting while discussing technical details.

The important thing to remember is that everyone is acting based on their own experiences. They have won't have the same reaction to a given situation as you or I or another person might have. That's OK though!

Again, you're not an outcast! When I asked you to forgive me in my prior post, I meant it genuinely.

The purpose for my posting was not meant to be against you.

In regards to you chip, if you're willing to accept some sound advice; I would return the chip and retrieve your $200 core charge, as the value of the chip should you decide to sell it is less than $200 and it sounds as though the money would be better off in your hand than Bill's.

If you're not interested in that, perhaps you could inform Bill that I would be willing to send him a working stock chip for $200 in place of your chip?

Don't take the comments on this forum very personally, especially if they are negative. There's no face to face communication here and it makes things lopsided. In this short life, it's not worth it to store up bitterness and resentment. Let it go. Make choices that are meant in your best interest, and not meant to be against the best interests of others.


Good luck to you in whatever you choose and God bless you.

A 97 like the OP owns requires an OBDII ECM,unlike your 94 that only needs the Eprom reflashed.

That ruins everything!

I thought it would be a nice surprise when his $200 arrived and he still had the stock ECM...

Online forums are unique beasts. People register with what ever info they want. They seldom put their real name. Their choice of words (or lack of choice) can be interpreted differently. There is no body language, or tone of voice one can aid in interpreting the "words" wrote on the screen (or email, if like the Yahoo groups). Some may profess to be "professionals" when not. I have noticed this between the many, may forums that I go to visit in many different subject areas. There are people that are genuine, and then there are ...... questionable.

Please don't take the above comments as being toward anyone. It is just a statement to cover my experiences from different forums on threads that I have read. (New members or low post count people tend to be looked at skeptically by "regulars". Unless certain people have actually met and know the other members.) (By the way, my 'nickname' of "VanBoy", I only have used on just a handful of forums in the last few years. My other handle, I have used more often and goes back to 2001 on some forums and online auctions. I wanted to change to something different....).

Good point about context-it is very difficult to convey it through text.

One more thing to add is that we have to be less sensitive and not easily offended.

If a small remark from member will get you offended better not ask anything or suggest anything.

As a standard disclaimer: "Please don't take the above comments as being toward anyone".
