    My advice would be to get a v8 harness for your 01 and keep the drive by cable peddle. It's more trouble than it's worth to switch to DBW. If you get a 99-02 harness and throttle body, everything...

    Get yourself some ARP connecting rod bolts as well. As far as the PCM I'd recommend Nelson Performance. They know what they're doing and most importantly have good customer service.

    Take a look at the Comp XR269HR on a 114LSA

    Get some new valve springs, LS6 springs will work and are affordable. Also get some hardened pushrods.

    And get that sucker tuned.
