I got a pic of the complete set up looks pretty good to me but I am unfamiliar with MDS? looks like its all there to me and i will get back to you guys on flashing later built SBEC
II I remeber something over a D-cal I have to go back and check I will try and post a pick in my profile and link it to this post
K here it is Rob Carter of http://www.fwdmoparmuscle.com/
"I believe that some SBEC
's are flashable already. I have factory
updates for a DRB tool for as far back as the 89 model year. Now
why would they provide updates for the DRB unless they are flashable

on the board where
> >the EPROM is located (ie, for a 32 pin device) I've never had the honor of looking at a turbo SBEC
board, but I have a couple of 3L & 3.3L boards sitting here and they actually have
pads for a 36 pin device. All the boards I have are SBEC
II so that may
explain the 32pin & 36 pin pad layout It may be only on the V6 boards. All the flash updates I have for
the applicable years are for the 3.0, 3.3, 3.8 and mexican 2.5 TIIs.
Since the mexican TII's are flashable, then maybe we can get ahold
of one of them and see what is different about it.
BTW- Did anyone know Mexico had a 2.5 TII until '95? I will post
the files for the Mexican TII's so you can all see them.

II's I have do use a 32 pin chip on them. The
chip is > a 28F256 like you mentioned at the end of your post. If memory
serves me right Chrysler started making some computers flashable in
the '93 model year. I have to wonder if the board with 32 pads for the
chip might have been early prep in going the flashable route or for
> development purposes. I'm going to have to find a data sheet on
the 28F256 and compare it to the 27C256 and see what differs.
I've heard rumors that Chrysler used a flashable SBEC
development (someone actually clainmed to have seen one). I'm wondering if
the extra 4 pins on the SBEC
are specifically for this purpose. Has anyone investigated what the extra pin locations on the SBEC
I'm pretty sure most auto manufacturers used flashable units
during development. It would also make sense since Chrysler already
wrapped up $$$ into the development of the printed board during the
development phase that they would use the same PCB in production. It would
also be nice if someone with one of these flashable units could sit down
and compare the componants between the two and see what differs.
