    No idea mate. Never seen of heard of them to be honest.

     

    Whats ts price like? Does it come with the appropriate loom?

    Im going ls1 Ecu, Cable tb and then a Linglefelter converter box. Simple and easy. Plenty of Ecu and looms around.   Plenty of tuners that work with the Ls Ecu.

    Just had a google search for that box and the price isn’t bad , so may look at that as it may be cheaper, what loom you looking at using and the ls1 ecu is there one better than the other

    Later models had double the memory, if you go later again ie VZ you get the E38 which is a very capable controller but it can be a fussy bitch to get working right.

    If you go e38 you must run the FBW.

    E38 doesn’t need the converter box.

    My experience with FBW in my VZ ls1 wasn’t that special. I didn’t rate it at all. Felt laggy.

    Not to sure how easy that would be, but why anyway, I love mine as it is.  The whole throttle linkage set up is part of the appeal for me, personal preference i know.

    Does an after market ECU prevent the need to swap reluctor wheels and the lingelfelter converter? (so i can run cable throttle on an ls3)
