Becky,
If you run into spots you have to thrift to stay within your budget, I think I may be able to lend a hand with the wiring and calibration on your LS. It all depends if I can find the base files to work with.

Will pass that info along going step by step, first thing is getting it all bolted up and in, then all the tedious s*it.

Alright, parts have been sorted thru, calls being made to see if the computer will work with this trans. ( comp is from a 4.8 liter with manual, my trans is auto) and looking for the best deal on an sye.

Old trans and t-case will be out this week and should be the start of some steps in the right direction. t-case is sold, if anyone needs the guts from the tranny tho, welcome to it. The case is cracked.

Computer should work, but it will need a different calibration with all of the auto trans interfaces correctly calibrated. The person you find to give you a tune should be able to do this if they're worth their salt.

Pretty sure it's just a setting (like 1 for auto, 2 for manual), calibrations are already in there for either way. I would need to open my tuner up to know for sure.

Whoever does your tune won't have an issue with it, and the 4.8/5.3/6.0computers are interchangable. If there are slight differences (fuel mapping, etc.) they won't matter. I have used both a 4.8 and a 5.3 computer with no noticable difference. You will end up taking it for a dynotune anyway and anything that might be different will get adjusted properly...

For what its worth, current pricing from Jim's Performance on that stuff is $350 to do the harness as a pared down/stand alone, and $200 for the tuning/tailoring to your system.

my harness and ECU went out last week.

That's a decent price for the harness, what are you getting for $200 on the tune?

Jim's will be doing mine as well, Kevin talked to him for about an hour today. Have to get a different wiring harness, the one i have was for a 5 speed so the wires aren't even there for an auto, altho Jim says he may have one laying around. $450 to flash computer and do the harness.
