    Thanks for the connector info

    There are at least three shapes of connectors on heated sensors.

    so the updates have been scarce because the computer with the memory stick reader is in the shop, so i can't get the new pics off.

    the basic rundown is that everything was back together a few days before halloween. we've spent since then trying to figure out why it won't start. narrowed it down to the PCM not firing the coils. i tried the PCM in my recruiter's truck today - same no-fire situation. i'm sending the computer back in the morning.

    a little anti-climactic, but that's it for now

    whoops! i ain't updated this in forever...

    basic gist is that it was, in fact a bad computer. returned it, got it back, & it fired right up.
    (i think he somehow set my rear end as a 4.10 because my speedo & mileage are about 12% off & doing the math off the tach, 4.10 rear gets me the numbers i'm seeing as opposed to the 3.73 i really have). also, for the 99 models, you need to tune out P1638 (Generator Terminal code) because something about newer engines don't like the way it talks to the alternator or something & it makes the battery light flash on the message center even when nothing's wrong.

    been driving about a month now.
    named the truck Penny - because i've put a pretty one into it to keep it mine & in good shape.

    another update... sorta

    in january, i got a BlackBear tune & it's running much better now. went ahead & made it a 93 tune.

    a couple weeks ago, i added tail pipes & picked up a little low end - which is a little nicer around town, but y'all done seen that video here - http://www.ls1truck.com/forums/mecha...st-change.html

    next on the list would be some LT headers, but i gotta replace my shocks first. looking at the OBX styled ones from eGay, but i'd rather have the newer style driver's side header OBX lists for the SUVs.

    so, after talking with MTI Racing & Tom Henry last weekend, they've helped push me over the boosted cliff i knew i shouldn't've drove them S/C'd Camaros!!

    now that's got me thinking...
    mp112 or tvs1900 - both are pretty comparable from what i'm reading & both are fine for a daily-driven 5.3 with 105k on the clock. right now, the thought would be 5-6psi, but i'm open to suggestions.

    i'm really new to forced induction (because until now, i've been pretty opposed to going that far), so please offer your comments & suggestions - i'm all ears.
