97 Suburban ECM firmware version?
Does anyone know what is the latest firmware for the ECM of a 97 Suburban (K1500 4X4) 5.7l vortec.
I have an elm327 based scanner. If i can findout the different version of firmware and then take it to the dealer fo a re-flash.
Also if there is such a thing, a list of what was changed in each firmware revision.

While I'm no expert on this, the 97 came with OBDII and a PCM, not an ECM. Some good info is available at FIS.
If I keep my 93, I expect I'll give reprogramming the ECM a try, but I am considering buying a 96 with a big block and working with a programmer like the Hypertech.

Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
The PCM is a programmable computer and does not contain a EPROM or calibrator as did its predecessor. The PCM contains a Electronically Eraseable Programmable Read Only Memory (EEPROM). This unit must be programed before being placed in service. These Units can be re- programed for any engine / transmission combination. All of these units are Sequential Port Fuel Injection (SEFI).

Exactly. I wasn't aware there was a difference in terms with ECM / PCM. I gguess I'm old school. I know that GM from time to time have "upgrades" to solve drivebility issues ect.. I want to make sure it's up to date and from there tweak a little.
So... What version PCM software is the latest?
