    You've basically converted to Coil-on-Plug ignition - do you find it runs smoother/more powerfully or efficiently, or is it just so you can dial in your own advance? Lots of questions in there, I know....
    Also, are you using the upgraded truck coils?
    I'm running an MS3 Pro ultimate, with LSx truck ignition coils. most builds probably wouldn't need anything this crazy. I wanted a hotter ignition for lighting things off under high boost, and to eliminate the ignition module,

    Advance can be changed with the stock brick just like you can with the truck coils.

    As far as smooth or efficiency is concerned, I can't really say, this engine doesn't have enough runtime to make a true assessment.

    • well, I installed a new battery, and my throttle control problem went away! I suspect cranking voltage was too low to drive the TB, causing the controller to drop control. With the new battery, comes a new, unexpected problem, my MAF either a) isn't outputting a signal or b) the signal isn't making it to the MS3 pro.

      So far, I have verified the MAF signal wire is wired to the correct MS3 pro pin, then I checked power and ground on the MAF sensor. everything seems to check out good, I'm going to order a new sensor and cross my fingers.

      I started working on a speed density "tune" to try and get it idling, and this thing sounds pretty nasty for a little V6, I'll have to try and get a camera with a decent mic and get a clip going.

        • it's been a year and a half without an update here... I should be ashamed...

          The engine spun a rod bearing shortly after the last update, I threw another engine together, and now it also has bearing material in the oil. today, 7 months after putting the engine "together" I found the thermostat that was on the engine in the car had been hacked up, leading me to believe that the engine at one point, was having overheating problems before I got to it...



          I dropped a block off at the machine shop the other day, he called and said it was ready, now I'm just waiting on main bearings so I can start getting it all put back together, once it's done, I'll swap it for the engine in the car, then decide that engine's fate.

          • Awesome project and nice job. Best of luck with the new engine and hope the old one is salvageable too.

            • That is the high performance stat mod Sucks about the bearings though.

                thanks, I'm currently waiting on the main bearings I ordered to show up, once they get here, things will start moving along a bit quicker.

                  lol, I'm not wild about the high flow thermostat...
