    WTB Latch Board

    Trying to find a latch board for an 86/87 GLHS logic module so I can use an Ostrich system to do some tuning.

    I don't think you need one? I'm running an ostrich on my 87 LM with the ribbon cable end going straight to the ZIF socket I have on there and it works just fine.

    Ok, I'll try that, I was reading the page for the ostrich and I thought it said I needed it. So, what exactly do I need? Just trying to get started fine tuning my wife's SC with lots of mods.

    You need a socketed logic module, and then instead of running an EEPROM chip in the socket you hook the Ostrich up there.

    I think somewhere there is an how-to for the logic module. It's fairly easy if you're good with soldering. You just remove the factory EPROM and solder in a ZIF or machine pin socket yo hold your new EEPROM or Ostrich cable end. If you're going to do an Ostrich I'd suggest going with the machine pin socket.

    The red stripe on the ostrich cable is pin 1, and that should be facing the same direction as pin 1 on your old EPROM. I think on mine it's towards the inside of the module.

    The latch board is only needed for the SBEC. All the other ECU's have a latch chip on-board.
