Re: LQ9 Engine Swap with Factory EFI and MSD Three Step

I will look. It's a PSI harness, looks good. There is a tach output. So I may just need to hook that in. Is there a way to test it then?

Thank you

LQ9 with a .600 lift can, headers, factory truck intake with a powerglide, Abruzzi 3500 to 4000 stall and 4.88 9". Can't wait to get it running.

Bigger Valves and those are p...

Both guys said the compression was over 13 to 1, so I am looking at putting my 12.5 to one pistons in my car and converting. I know I need...
