    I don't have any on hand but I'm sure you can find one around here! I know that Broahnazki was having trouble with a fast manifold, his build is here : http://www.nastyz28.com/threads/vincents-72-el-maro.307357/

    You can definitely use a GM ecu with a manual. What I was eluding to was that because 4l60e are computer controlled the microsquirt wouldn't work unless you purchase a separate trans controller,, but with a GM ecu and a 60e you don't need anything, hence why the micro isn't the best for an auto.

    Thank you!

    I got the standard truck pump for 1999. Thats a standard saginaw pump used in many applications.

    My video on building a microsquirt for your ls should be done in a week :)

    Great video, was fun following your original build and using U-Tube now is a very good idea. Looking forward to seeing more of these videos ;)

    I learned to tune myself and had a local shop who I trust very much do the last little bit. It's really not rocket science and anyone can learn. You literally look at graphs and change numbers. As long as you know where timing will start to get dangerous (23 and up deg or so) then ypu can do it very safely.

    What have you done for fuel delivery? External fuel pump or change entire tank for internal pump? And i am looking into a 5.3 and 4L60. What is the best upgrades for the 5.3 on a budget?

    Great info! What brand headers are you running?

    Also is that t-10 transmission build at all?
