I was wondering. What would be a cost estimate of this upgrade. Even better would be a parts/supplies list with estimated prices off to the side. Also, Darth, would you be willing to modify a 7730 with the necessary wires & connectors (with extra long wiring to cut to fit) if I sent one to you and how much would you charge. Also, each time I upgrade my engine, how do I modify the ECM software or do I need to send it back to you. If I do need to send it back to you for reprogramming, what info would you need to properly tune it. Oh yeah...how much besides shipping would you charge for reprogramming each time?



Ok, lets see if I can put something together off the top of my head. For some of the following prices, assume used parts purchased from a salvage yard...

-7730 ECM incl V6 mem-cal, wiring connectors, and some wiring - $50-$75 used
(if no V6 mem-cal is included with the ECM, one would need to be purchased - approx $65 from gmpartsdirect.com)

-Knock sensor, new - about $35

-Custom chip programming done by me - $45

Above is the absolute minimum you would need to purchase to pull this swap off less EGR hookup. If you wanted to hook the EGR up and make it functional, you would need to obtain/purchase the EGR, EGR adapter plate, wiring connector for the EGR, and extra wiring to run inside the car for the EGR. Again, you DO NOT need the EGR unless you have emissions testing in your area; it can be deleted in the chip program.

Now concerning the wiring, it is a pretty "simple" swap. I would be willing to put together a write-up and provide it to anyone who wants it so they could do the conversion at their end. This conversion is NOT going to require much soldering/rewiring at all. Most of what's involved is repinning the ECM connectors which you would do 1 at a time; so it would not be difficult, just time consuming. Some soldering and splicing would be required both inside the car and in the engine compartment but what is required is minimal.

Again, as far as a 100% plug-and-play kit; I have given some thought to this and it is going to be very difficult if not impossible to put something together that would fit in the space constraints inside the Fiero where the factory ECM resides. It would be far easier (and cheaper) to just repin/modify an existing Fiero harness instead of trying to put some sort of plug-and-play kit together.


Regarding your question concerning my custom chip tuning service, please PM or email me for details on that.

Please yes. Send me the info on the swap. Pictures if at all possible. I sometimes have a hard time visualizing anything. I am currently looking for parts on e-bay for this upgrade. PM me or send to knight_@cox.net please sir.
BTW, thank you so much for all the help you are giving me. You are definitely due a + once I reach 30 posts.

I, too, would be interested in info on this. It will probably be this summer before I can actually start proceeding, but would like the info and my knowledge to be complete before starting the project.

email will be on it's way shortly concerning the chip reprogramming...

As far as the instructions go, yes I will include some pics to help you visualize what needs to be done and what you will need to do it.

Correct me if I am wrong. From what I have found out the following is true:
*The only difference between the 7727 and the 7730 is that the 7727 is 'weatherproofed' to be used in the engine compartment. If this is true, are the connector plugs identical?
*The only difference between the 7730 and the 7749 (Turbo 4.3 Syclone/Typhoon) is the 7749 is missing one quad driver and has additional injector driver. Are the connector harness plugs the same?
*The EPROMs are the same between all three. Two EPROMs are used: 27C128 16K * 8 or 27C256 32K * 8. Does that mean that one is a 16K, 8 bit processor and one is a 32K 8 bit processor? Or am I reading it wrong? What is the rel world difference between the two in terms of programing and function/abilities?
*The 7730 can replace the 7170 used in the Fiero with minimal modifications.
*The 7730 was placed in an "underhood case" for use in the McLarren 3.1L Turbo Grand Prix (Called the 7727)

Now since the 3.1 turbo uses a a 7727 (7730 encased), is there any real advantage to using a 7749 for a turbo application 3400? Is the only benefits to the 7749 the ability to control an additional injector? What is a quad driver? Is it a fuel injection driver and if so is that used for the 3.1 turbo?

Sorry for all the questions.

Thank you 81tta and Darth Fiero for the info and sites that have helped me so fa. I am so grateful to everybody that is helping me figure out how to upgrade my 2.8 to a 3400 with eventually a turbo. I am so electrically challenged!

The above post by me is also from my thread http://www.fiero.nl/forum/Forum2/HTML/079675.html.

I wanted to add that I checked out the schematics on the 7730 link at http://www.cruzers.com/~ludis/p4xref.html#1227730 and it pulls up the 7749 schematic. The 7727 link does the same. Are these the same boards?

Ryan:

You got a lot of press on my swap, just a follow up on the car:

440T4 2000rpm @70mph
starts good with no cold start injection even below 20 degrees
idle is at a steady at 700rpm
car runs strong

mpg is 28 city and 35 hwy
car runs on 87 octane fuel as well

440T4 seems to have a final drive of about 284

again thanks Ryan, we love the upgrades

well worth the money for anyone who has a stock 2.8 3 speed automatic

There is at least one pin difference between the 730 and 727 and I believe it involves the wastegate solenoid as discussed on the 60 degree forum in a post on adding a patch to the TunerproRT software to allow wideband O2 datalogging. The 727 has four plugs instead of the 730s two. Now that I think about it, I may ditch the 727 harness I've nearly completed and opt for the 730 once I compare the wiring diagram to the Fieros since it is capable of running the TGP code. As for the epromms I don't believe they are exactly interchangeable as far as exchanging 128 Kb with 256. I know you can use the higher speed in the lower speed application but I don't believe it will work properly in the opposite configuration. Someone with more knowledge of the specifics can clarify.

Ok, lets clarify some things here...

No, the two computers use different connectors AND different wiring terminals.

True about the internal differences between the 7730 and 7749. I believe the connectors are identical.

Or am I reading it wrong? What is the rel world difference between the two in terms of programing and function/abilities?


From what I have heard, most of the same code masks can be used in all 3 computers; I don't think there is a difference in processing power between the computers. All 3 computers use the same type mem-cal. The Syclone/Typhon 4.3L Turbo uses a 27C128 chip. The 7730/7727's use a 27C256 chip. All 3 computers WILL WORK with the 27SF512 flash memory chip. You just have to offset the start of device address to the correct setting when programming the 27SF512 flash memory chip for use in these applications.

*The 7730 was placed in an "underhood case" for use in the McLarren 3.1L Turbo Grand Prix (Called the 7727)


Concerning internal hardware, the 7727 and 7730 are pretty much identical. The only difference besides the casing is the connector design and wiring terminals (because they have to be sealed to the connectors). You cannot use the Fiero wiring terminals with the 7727 ECM; but they will work with the 7730 ECM.

Now since the 3.1 turbo uses a a 7727 (7730 encased), is there any real advantage to using a 7749 for a turbo application 3400? Is the only benefits to the 7749 the ability to control an additional injector? What is a quad driver? Is it a fuel injection driver and if so is that used for the 3.1 turbo?



A quad driver is nothing more than a controlled output (used for controlling an electric fan, EVAP solenoid, indicator lamp on the dash, etc). The 7749 ECM was also used on early Quad 4 and 87-90 Sunbird 2.0L Turbo engines which I think used Peak-and-Hold injectors (low impedence). The only reason why I brought up the 7749 is because it was used in the 4.3L Turbo Syclone/Typhoon applications which use a distributor; and it is this code mask you would probably want to use in a turbo 2.8 application. (FWIW, I am posting wiring diagrams and pinouts of the Sy/Ty ECM to my website as we speak). From what I have heard, the Sy/Ty [$58 code mask] can be used in a 7727/7730 ECM without any problems (although I haven't personally tried it).

The 7730 ECM will run the TGP Code. HOWEVER, the TGP code will ONLY work with DIS ignition system. (you probably already know this, but I just want to clarify it for the rest of the readers)

There isn't a speed difference between the 128 and 256 EPROM chips. It's the size that is different. The 27C128 chip holds 16kb of info and the 27C256 chip holds 32kb of info. The 27C512/27SF512 chips hold 64kb of info. Concerning these 4 chips, a larger sized chip can be used in an application that calls for a smaller program. (IE: a 27C256 chip can be used in an application that originally used a 27C128 prom chip). Read my previous post concerning programming start address offsets when trying to do this.

If you plan on dropping in a 3400, you will need to reroute the complete harness for the motor. We've done two 3400 swaps and using the 7730 ecm for our set-up and wroks just great. I've dyno'd at 175hp and the wheels. Have a few ideas to open it up a little more while still N/A. I'm sure Darth would be able to program a chip for you no problem. I have a friend that did mine, he's used to put 3400's in J-bodies. Also, you don't want the tranny that comes with the 3400, it's electronic controlled, try to find a 4T60 that uses a kick-down cable. Mines a 5 speed, so a little less wiring to do.

My 3400 install


2nd swap which uses stock 2.8 timing cover and accesories.
This images is larger than 102400 bytes. Click to view.

Nice work on the upgrade Darth, already have someone that might be interested in doing this. Must add this to my fav also.

Thanks guys. Very helpful.
The 3400 won't run an electronic transmission? Crap! I wanted a strong transmission that could handle the torque and was planning on a 4T65e. Can a 4T60 be beefed up with 4T65e internals?
And that 3400 install -- DAMN that is what I am talking about. I want to have the intake and valve covers painted red like your second picture. Please explain about rerouting the engine harness.

Darth,

Is it correct to assume the 7730 ECM upgrade with work with a 95 Camaro 3.4 engine that I'm currently installing into my 86GT with OD 4-speed auto transmission. The 3.4 will be a hydrid, 3.4 displacement & 2.8 heads, intake and ignition system, etc. If that is the case, the 7730 ECM upgrade will work with the engine upgrad I'm also interested in doing the upgarde.

Thanks for you work on the subject and provide the group the information.

Regards,
Mike

The 3400 V6 will work with the 4T65-E transmission but you must use an OBD-2 computer (99-up), or use an aftermarket TCM (transmission control module). The 7730 ECM does NOT have the ability to control an electronic transmission.

The 440-T4/4T60 transmissions can accept some internal upgrades, but it is unclear if they can be built as strong as a 4T65-E can be. How much power is your 3400 engine going to be making?

The 7730 ECM will work with any pushrod V6 PFI engine. Use of a distributor or DIS ignition system will determine what code mask (programming) you must use. The programming can be adjusted to work with a wide range of mods you install on the engine. The 7730 ECM will work with a 440-T4/4T60 non-electronic auto OD transmission.

I am hoping for 400+. The members on 60degree6.com were discussing bending a crank beyond that. I am going to look into a bearing cradle to prevent this and improved oiling as one episode was blamed on spinning a rod bearing. I was hoping to do a paddle shift conversion using an aftermarket TCM and a kit. Just can't remember the link.

If you think there will be a problem with crank strength some of the 3500 V6s have steel cranks that can be turned down to the proper throw diameter, look for the numbers 7484 stamped on the end of the crank snout to know for sure that's what the engine has without having to do much more than remove the harmonic balancer retaining bolt. If you plan on turbocharging it would be easier to use the entire short block if the compression ratio will be in the range you would like. It will not be as low as the cast iron heads on the 3400 would be since the 3500 heads have a slighly larger combustion chamber than what's found on the 3400. The short block accepts a distributor also.

The late model fwd blocks have substantial main bearing reinforcement via the sidebolts through the oil pan and the windage tray bolted to the caps.

What are the differences between the 3500 non-VVT and the 3400. Will the 3500 replace the 3400. I know that the 3900VVT and de-stroked 3500VVT are a different engine than the 3500 non-VVT. Can't remember if its both the block and heads. I just don't want to deal yet with all the computer and electronic issues that have yet to be fully dealt with for the latest GM V6 engines. Someone on 60degree6 has a cable conversion for the 3500's drive by wire throttle. I think it is mentioned in the thread about a 3500 head on a 3400 short block hybrid.

Haven't had much time to put togther a rewiring instruction sheet because I am knee-deep in the next swap. I WILL get to it at some point and will post it to my website when it is ready. Might be a couple of weeks tho.

What are the differences between the 3500 non-VVT and the 3400. Will the 3500 replace the 3400. I know that the 3900VVT and de-stroked 3500VVT are a different engine than the 3500 non-VVT. Can't remember if its both the block and heads. I just don't want to deal yet with all the computer and electronic issues that have yet to be fully dealt with for the latest GM V6 engines. Someone on 60degree6 has a cable conversion for the 3500's drive by wire throttle. I think it is mentioned in the thread about a 3500 head on a 3400 short block hybrid.


The 3500 has a better flowing intake system including the heads which many of the fwd 3400 guys are swaping their top end for. It also has larger diameter crank pins to stiffen the crank, one oil squirter for pistons #5 & 6 and 5.9" rods along with a few other minor external changes that should prove it to be overall stronger than the 3400 with a question mark for the pistons since the pin is moved closer to the top. Who knows GM may have used forged pistons in it like those found in the 3.6 DOHC motor found in the front wheel drive vehicles now as documented on their site. It's not likely but then again they also stated the steel crank was reserved for the 3500 V6 SUVs and I discovered personally on two occassions that was not the case in engines from a 04 Malibu and 05 G6 with the 3500.

And that 3400 install -- DAMN that is what I am talking about. I want to have the intake and valve covers painted red like your second picture. Please explain about rerouting the engine harness.


you can get a controller to run a 4t65e in your fiero for less than $800.00 and it gives you options that you would want on a strip and possibly street. putting an electronic tranny is easy if it bolts up and you can get axles.

How about tuneability? the fiero ECM has lots of info out there to get a guy into chip modding quite easy, how much info is out there for this newer ECM and chipset? Do you use TunerCat with it easily or do you use somethign else?

I use tunercat software for both ECMs. From what I have seen, the OE Fiero 2.8 computers have much less items that can be tuned than the 7730 system. Below are some examples of what can be changed in both ECMs using the Tunercat software...

Just because of the datastream speed alone, the 1227730 is FAR more of a tuneable ECM then the V6 Fiero's could ever be. You see the actual curve of the O2 sensor as opposed to 1.5 second sample rates. The 7730 will do 10 samples in ONE SECOND!!!

Agreed. Also, the processing power/speed of the 7730 also appears to be better than the OE Fiero 2.8 ECMs.

What are the chances that I could install one of these into my 2.5 L4?

I know that it wouldn't make much difference in power or anything. I just want to get rid of the hunting idle and possibly increase it's efficiency.

It *is* possible to use this computer with the 2.5L 4. Though it was never intended to control this engine, it was used on the 2.0 OHC, which is simular in some ways.

The big selling point with the V6's is that the two connectors on the V6 harness plug into the 7730, the wires just have to be moved around a lot, and a third connector added, and some of the pins moved over to it. The Iron duke has what are called PCB edge connectors, which are not compatible with the 7730, therefore you would have to change all the pins on all the connectors to get it to work. THEN you will need to tune it to the duke, which behaves and is tuned pretty differently from a 2.0L OHC. Im not even sure if the ignition systems are compatible, but they likley are the same knowing GM.

Good to know. Sounds like if I'm going to go to all that effort, I might be better off waiting to I do my engine swap and use the ECU from that vehicle.

Thanks for the feedback!

another candidate ecm would be the '749
fan control
boost control
boost controled spark timeing and fuel tables (calibrations exist for 50lb injectors and 3 bar map sensors)
will run with single or dual knock sensors
will recognise wideband with an easy change to the $58 code
programable shift lights or auto trany shift locations
most tuning soft wear will work with the $58 code
a new self tuning (to a certain point) $59 code is on the horizon
lots of naturally asperated GM vehicles used this ecm besides the various turbo applications
Data Master will log all the ecm data for over 2 hrs ($100 + laptop)
moats has a chip adapter that allows you to burn 16 diff bins on one chip and switch easily between them

ECM $35 on ebay
tuner cat is free
moates single bin adapter is about $40
reusable chips are about $5
chip burner is $85

and Cooter on this board has already done a 2.8 so the bins exist to get you started

Got a spreadsheet put together for the wiring conversion. It can be viewed/downloaded here:

I have wiring diagrams and pinouts for both the Fiero 2.8 ECM's as well as the 90-92 Camaro 3.1 ECM available for download at my website.

First thanks Darth for the ecm comparisons (that ought to give me something to do for a while comparing them).
The 7749 functions and abilities and such as listed by vortecfiero are all good. Since the 7730 and 7749 are so similar, do these also apply to the 7730?
What does self-tuning (to a certain point) mean? And as compared to the Fiero's ecm? I thought that everytime you disconnected your battery that the ecm would have to relearn some parameters/values? Does the Fiero ecm not do that?
With the use of a wideband O2 sensor, will the ecm make adjustments to the fuel and spark to keep the A/F ratio at where it is programmed tho keep it. Is this the self tuning that was mentioned?
Who is moates and cooter? Please provide links to both.
Thanks

Is this a 7730? The description lists it as "THE PART NUMBER IS 16171331 AND THE SERVICE NUMBER IS 01227/30" on eBay. :http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=009&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWA%3AIT&viewitem=&item=190071721326&rd=1,1
If so, then this is my new ECM!
Thanks.

Yes, that looks like the 7730 ECM you would need.
