My Trofeo has what is basically a GM TH400 in design (for a front wheel drive configuration) and only has a vacuum modulator. My Deuce is running a GM 700R4 and only needs one output from the ECM to lock up the torque convertor during cruise and this can be done with an output from the ECM or with a vacuum controlled switch. If you have a more modern electronic shifted GM transmission then we should talk about my TCM (transmission control module) that I am developing for the GM 4L60e and GM 4L80e
I want to start testing with my 98 Buick Lesebre (4t60e) after I figure out how to make everything work together I think I will start building a turbo buick v6 Volvo wagon. :D

Fred, long time~no talk: What the status on a slant six sequential injection using a 36-1 wheel and EDIS-6? Id use a "6 minus 5" neutered reluctor electronic distributor as a CPS. I think the EDIS-6 acts just like a standard points/electronic distributor to Free-EMS, correct? Ive been out of the game for so long, you guys are probably on Jag 1.0 now....

Not much has changed on that front. Lots has changed on other fronts. No EDIS support was ever developed. I can't even fully remember exactly how the EDIS signal flow works. Life's been super busy!

Also, unless you have a huge turbo with huge injectors, sequential is overrated IMO. Semi-sequential provides more upsides and fewer downsides overall.

Even my hotel with 4 tiny shots per cycle from one oversized injector before the throttle plate runs pretty well.
