I have an INTENSE PCM for an '01 Impala LS that I no longer own. Is there any personally identifiable information stored within INTENSE's PCMs? Is it an issue if someone else buys a PCM for a car with another VIN? Is there a market for old PCMs? Just trying to clear out my garage...


Thank you,

Mike

Only personal info i can think of is the VIn#. and its not so personal because anyone can walk up to your car and look at the driver side dash and see the vin#. Somone can purchase a used pcm and change the vin# to match their car so they can use it in their vehicle

Next time you get pulled over and you know you have illegal tint Follow these instructions: Tie a string around your power window fuse, and after you roll down your drivers window yank the fuse, which will render your windows inoperable. They can't test the film if the meter can't fit over it.

Thanks, sumdude. Sounds about like what I'd expected.

At any rate, I have said PCM for sale if anyone is interested... Make an offer through PM.
