No I'm using the aristo gte harness that came with the motor not the stock GE. I'd like to get the extender harness to wire the piggy back in there and not have to chop up the factory harness.

Will I still need those even though I'm running a piggy back? What are you trying to get for all 3? Got any pics and more info? Text me at 301-792-1234

On his dyno it was 410 and 390tq lol......someone jacked some sheet up.


My tuner showed me my tune to prove he did 15 deg of timing.....and said only a moron would ever get over 20 in this case.

On the flip side.....this means check your cars before buying them, because modded cars can be more of a nightmare than non modded......its scary because you never know who did what and when.


Awesome build though twoloose. I want to do the same......but 500/500 hp/tq range.....on e85.

I cannot wait to start mine, and we are looking at the same time frame!!
Yeah I never disputed the power, but just the fact it was having issues just a couple days after purchase and then to find out about the compression just topped it you know.

Moral of the story, either buy stock and do it yourself or at a minimum try and do a leak down and compression check....

Ordering some billet pulleys today, not doing a billet crank though, heard lots of bad things about those.

Can someone help me track down a harness extension? Having a hell of a time finding one. Thanks guys

Looks good man, Love the black on the engine. Will you leave the 3000 cover with the original cover or will you be painting that a special color?

That's a good question actually, I'm open to cool suggestions. My original thought was to have it repainted the factory teal color and then outline the letters and logo in black. I definetly think the motor needs some color though...

That actually doesn't sound bad at all might look good you should photoshop some pics with different colors who knows you might come up with a cool design.
