computer bypass plug

okay i have a 1994 impala ss and i am trying to put a 427 big block in it. a 350 lt1 is coming out and it is fuel injected, the 427 in carburated. there is a computer bypass that plugs into the exsisting computer that will allow the computer to run the transmission and allow the motor to run. does anybody know where i can find this?

I did not know that there was a computer bypass, but on my '93 truck everything is computerized and to get the tranny to work you have to get a seperate computer to control the tranny alone. Around $450 I heard. Not that I did it, but we were tossing the idea around to try and do the same thing and every mechanic I talked to told me I needed the seperate computer. I think Jegs has them. I guess this did not answer your question though did it?

I did find this site that may help you. http://goldsswagon.com/Impala%20SS%2...ons%20List.htm

I've got a '94 Impala SS too. I think Summit sells a TCI Transmission Control Unit that works with the 4L60E. Have you posted on the Impala SS Forum?

I don't have any personal experience with it... I've still got my stock LT1 and 4L60E. I'd do some research on the TCI web site - Electronics and probably call them to ask some questions. It sounds like what you're looking for, though.
