there is a HUGE difference and advantage when you can simply plug in a diagnostic scanner to tell you exactly what a problem is on a stock harness!!!

I picked this (nightmare) thread example at random just to give you a "clue" for what it takes to just get a tranny shift controller to work....

the smart plan is put the tbi back on the motor and hook up all the wiring factory correct....
(or take all the courses needed to truly understand what you are doing)

enough time and $$$$ you can do anything but the actual results will be not as good as when you started (and endless hours of trouble shooting debug and tuning to gain nothing)....

actually read the instructions first when swapping or adding guages does make that job relatively simple


Well I'm keeping this motor, I'm not changing back. That guy had a different tranny than I did as well. I don't want a stock truck or I would have kept that motor. Maybe its not the smartest route to go but I can't just get rid of my motor, I just had it built the way I wanted it.
