93 Corvette / Camaro LT1 16159278

Introduction

The 1993 Camaro / Corvette LT1 PCM 16159278 is an oddball.  It was not used before or since.  The $DA2 mask was used in Y-body Corvettes and the $DA3 mask was used in F-body Camaro/Firebirds.

Hardware for Tuning

  • G1 Chip adapter and C2 27SF512 chip required to reprogram ECM
  • BURN2 Chip Programmer programs 27SF512 chips
  • ALDU1 with CABL1 required for datalogging
  • Ostrich2 required for real time tuning
  • APU1 AutoPROM All-in-one device works on some vehicles but many have issues datalogging reliably.  This is NOT recommended for this platform, please buy BURN2/Ostrich2/ALDU1 instead.  Using an ALDU1 in addition to the APU1 solves any issues, if you already have an APU1 on hand.

Software for Tuning

These computers use the $DA2 or DA3 masks from the factory.  The $DA2 mask was used in Y-body Corvettes and the $DA3 mask was used in F-body Camaro/Firebirds.

TunerPro RT + the $DA2 or $DA3 definitions works for editing and datalogging.    (It is included with the AutoProm)

TunerCat OBD1 tuner with the appropriate definition works for editing.

TTS Datamaster with the appropriate definition works for datalogging. (this is the recommended software)

Recommended Hardware to Buy

  1. G1 + BURN2 + C2 = most basic
  2. G1 + BURN2 + C2 + ALDU1 w/ CABL1 = basic with logging capabilities
  3. G1 + BURN2 + C2 + ALDU1 w/ CABL1  + Ostrich2 = Chip tune / realtime tune / datalog – full capabilities
