    Nice job getting the motor in man, let me know how the f-body manifolds fit when you get them on. How's you're brake booster clearance?

    So my engine setup change from ls1 to ls3 build, all my hard work in dropping the motor had to come out. In the process i moved down south to clear lake and love the car scene down here. so currently i sit back at phase 1 with just a roller car. Im trying figure out my tranny issues before dropping it. i have a 09 ls3 with 04 4l60e. just trying to figure out if the new ecu can operate the tranny since it does not have iss.
