    Yes sir. I found a guy in colorado that was making his own modified harnesses. That's why you see all the red wires

    500.

    but now fitech sells a "self learning" standalone harness for any ls swap application for 799 without trans control. which is way more bang for the buck

    got alot done this weekend. wired in the entire harness. starter wiring battery cables to the trunk and to the engine mounted the intake. installed the new injectors, spliced in new connectors and extended some electrical wiring as i routed the harness to the rear of the engine to the front which is opposite of oem.

    still alot to clean up but it did start up for the first time and its a mean mother

    for some reason these links are not working.

    cut new temp/pressure bungs on the lathe last night for the charge piping and plasma cut out the header panel to clear the charge piping.
    just picked up the cooler kit today and cx gave me one boot that wasnt correct. called them and they are shipping another out today no charge and no return of the incorrect tube. i even offered to take a picture and send it to him to prove i'm not just trying to get free parts and he still said it wasnt necessary.

    Pretty dam good customer service so far! ill get pictures up in a bit of the cooler.

    idk why but when i post the link using the link tab it converts it to "[img][/img]" and thats it started doing it about a week ago or so...

    in other new i did get the cooler securely mounted and most of the charge piping ran. waiting on a couple more bends to make the discharge pipe at the turbo horn line up right. then off to plumbing the exhaust. THE TURBO IS MOUNTED Cool Cool

    ok guys im sorry i just looked through photo buckets new site rules and they have disabled 3rd party hosting/embedding of photos into other sites/forums/servers etc if you have the free Photobucket account. Now you have to pay for your account to access this function again.

    well im not doing that, so ill try and see if i can find another site to do it with because it says my storage on here is full (gmbodyforum)
