Then again, mine runs just fine, so I don't know.
did you get it with all the wiring and computer and shtuff? You doing the harness or shipping it out?

I have a TH400 Winters sitting the garage that you can use for mock up until yours comes in. Hopefully I can find all of the pieces.

Yes on all wiring and computer- I think I'll go with the lifetime tune guy on Pirate, $250 to strip the harness and $150 for lifetime tunes. Deal or not?

Thanks for the shifter offer. If I get everything else done and its still not here I may ask to borrow it for mockup, but I have a lot to do before I get there.

I think most any mail order tune is gonna be fine when you are just having them remove VATS, rear O2s, etc. I wonder how many of the tuners are selling something they copied from someone else.

I used frost for the tune in the 6.0. Seems to run good, but like most, I've never put it on the dyno to verify claims or checked anything with a wideband O2. Feva4u pointed him out to me when I asked if he was interested in tuning our engine. I did some searching and Frost has a good reputation on ls1.com and ls1tech.com so I decided to go with him.

Any reason why you used a 32 element sprag and not a 34 element? I also would have used an adjustable modulator.

Stupid fat fingers on a small phone! The modulator is still adjustable, but I'm told adjustments to it's set screw are minimal. Thoughts?

Yeah they are minimal. I think it may be 3 mph or so each way. You get more rpm/mph change with swapping governor weights and springs.
