Obs Cali emissions question

Ok this week I am going to be tearing into my 97 7.3 Cali emissions, I'm replacing the heads and manifolds, studding the heads, going with electric fuel with regulated return, t500 17 degree pump, and a set of stage 2 rosewoods, my question is do I have to send the PCM, or idm to be reflashed to run the single shots, or would just sending my ts chip out to be reflashed work?

IDM does not need anything. I would ask your tuner regarding the PCM, but I would figure the chip reflash would do it (provided they know what you now have). Cheers!

Now I may be overthinking this because I'm switching over anyway, but we're some 97's non-Cali emissions, the engine sticker is black, I just see the 2 lines on the back of the pump( no diaphragm) and the reason why I got the truck years ago was because it needed a computer, the one that I put in is TEE5 which come back to a 95, which would make it single shot federal, once again I think I'm overanalizing it

If your valve cover does not have a blue lettered sticker stating it's compliance with California emissions and the PCM is a federal TEE5 then you probably have a federal model, Cali models would be the most rare of all (1 of 49) only originally sold in California either way, also if your going this deep just re pin the PCM harness to a federal model
