I really don't know, Ive worked on hacking the gm efi systems for a few
years and see the output to the digital dash quite often the the aldl
message handler. I "THINK" if the gm had fuel injection and digital dash the
signals go to the computer and get processed there.
That being said I have never worked on a gm efi on a gm car, only on my
landrover, and sidekick and a few other little projects.
