mine will be DBW unless I have a problem with it. I will be making a starter tune to make it run but for the final tune I will be modifying the harness myself and having vector motorsports do the tune on their chassis dyno.

Jims performance is great for a standard tune for something like a stock engine. I will have an after market cam and cam phasing so it needs a lot of fine tuning. a tune and dyno time from vector is about 500 as where jims charges about 400 for a tune and a harness that is plug and play.

I havent heard that... never knew of any gen 3 heads that are iron, as far as I know there are all aluminum heads.

maybe you are thinking of the 99 3/4 tons that were still the old style body with the 5.7's?

I have an LQ9 in the WTF-J. It sits in front of an 4L65e and an Atlas TC. I put in the GMPP "Hot Cam" and love it.

I stayed with the truck intake/pan and have plenty of room under the hood and clearance (See the third pix with the crossover and note the location of the front diff/drive shaft. The oil pan is not the low point by any means.)

what did you do about the speed sensors for the transfer case? Pics look awsome. Two into one exhaust? Transfer case adapter?

The VSS is in a housing between the trans and the T/C. It works, but in low range the speedo goes nuts. (You can see the VSS housing in this pic.)



Yup, single exhaust. 2.5" collectors into a 3" single system. I put a bung for a wide band in the root of the Y pipe where it transitions to 3".

Also did you have to run an adapter for the atlas? And what bolt patern was on the back of the trans, 6 bolt hex with a 27 spline output? Was the 4l65e was the stock truck tranny that came with your engine

Three. (Two pre-cat and one WB. The WB isn't in yet; that will be a later upgrade.)

Yes, the Atlas was the six bolt hex pattern.

The powertrain came from Schram and was out of an '06 Escalade w/500mi. It included the trans, and was a great way to buy all the pieces and parts as it included the ECM, DBW TAC, starter, alt, harnesses, etc.

Love it. Lots of grunt and it winds up real quick. The lope of the cam sounds good too.
