Customer Question
Hello, I am doing a...
Hello, I am doing a 1994 Buick Roadmaster LT1 and 4l60e swap into a 1997 Chevy Astro van that had a Vortec 4.3... I have the engine in the subframe... The donor car is on site. Also have the obd1 pcm from the donor... Im down to the wiring... I'm wondering if I can splice the astro bulkhead connector onto the LT1 wiring harness end and if i can just butt connect or solder the wires from pinouts of each connector but I cannot locate the pinouts for each of them or if its even feasible... Do you have any advice or at least the pinoits for each of them? Thanks!
