GM LS3 Connect and Cruise Package

Has anyone saw this GM Performance LS3 Connect and Cruise package at Pace Performance.

http://paceperformance.com/i-7806134...65e-trans.html

I am looking to do a LS3 swap, so it looks tempting.

Pretty slick package. Notice how small the wiring harness is? Would make for an easy clean install. Looks like they have tons of smart products for serious swaps. Expensive but the cost versus frustration ratios seems good.

Being that I have never made the swap if it saves me time it might be worth the extra $ to pay.

I am really interested in hearing what mods would have to be made for the transmission.

I wonder if they sell a kit that has everything but the actual engine and transmission. I think those could be found a lot cheaper in a parts recycler yard. Maybe save $5K or so.

Browse through the site a bit and you will see the controller kit which is everything needed to run and engine/trans down to the electronic pedal for about $1k.

Thanks for the advice. I have installed 3 engines in my 68 and currently have the original engine back in.

I have become bored with the car and wanted to take on the LS engine swap but the harness has me worried.

To install a totaly new drive train for around 11 grand doesn't seem too outragous just alittle out of some people price range...but good find Its got to take some of the guess work out of the equation..

As posted, you can buy the computers and harness separate, wonder if you could upgrade from ls1, ls2 to an ls3 with it and have it be tunable?

I like this setup because its all new and the computer comes with a tune, even though the tune is probably pretty conservative, it would still be a great setup to latter build onto for more horse power.


You could buy a drop out unit and have someone else rework the harness, with a drop out unit you would have everything but the fuel, cooling and exhaust systems, and spend less than what this kit cost.
