Reflash as in what? For more performance? If so there are no companies that are doing that.
Reflash as in to correct a problem using a Saturn reprogram then so far as I know you will need to go to Saturn to have it done. There may be private businesses that have the ability to reprogram the control modules but I don't know of any.

Wont reflash an outdated PCM calibration though. Needs to be taken to a saturn dealer, possibly any GM brand dealer with TIS, or any other shop that chooses to fork out way too much money for the software.....

I know this is a really old thread, but for $400 Jet Chips will reflash your ECU with a performance program tuned to your specific vehicle, then overnight it back to you. Hope that makes for alot of happy Saturn owners out there.

I saw a while ago about Jet reflashing, but there are many forums on here talking about why they don't do anything. All the flash does is make it so your car thinks the gas pedal is pressed down farther than it is. Up until it's pushed down all the way. THen it is the same. So $400 bucks, or push the gas down farther...

Thats not the JET PCM thats the Venom 400. People get the two confused. They both are garbage though.

You won't be happy when you realize that $400 didn't get you any more horsepower on a S-series Saturn. Some folks dynoed a Jet Chip on a Saturn S-Series and it didn't do anything for power. SPS stopped selling them when they found out they don't work.

Get an Apexi SAFC II. This will allow you to control the things most people want to change in their pcm, and it really does give more power, anywhere from 10-15hp depending on the tune.
