Running EFI and an 4L80E with the same computer - What do I need?
I fairly new to these forums and I need some help tracking down some information. I would like to upgrade to EFI and a 4L80E for my Gen I small block, but I can't afford both an aftermarket fuel injection system and a stand alone transmission controller. I was hoping to take advantage of the General's engineering and simply retrofit an OEM computer that can power both the EFI and the tranny. I am open to suggestions, but I was thinking about using the Ramjet manifold since I have Vortec heads. That package has all of the sensors installed (at least for a basic TPI system) so I guess all I need is the appropriate computer and harness to connect everything together. I am central Texas and I know there are some good programmers within a few hours drive. I would like to take advantage of the most advanced Gen 1 EFI if at all possible so I will switch out the sensors if necessary. What computer should I use and does anyone know of someone that can build a harness for this retrofit? Is there anything I am missing that would make this a difficult endeavor? Any links to other applicable threads would be greatly appreciated.
