Hey, FastCraig, I plan on doing the exact same swap "6.0/6l80E" in a few months. I have the engine/trans and soon order the DOD and VVT Delete Kits. I'm still up in the air over what ECU I'll use whether I use the factory ECU or aftermarket. In 2005 I used a megasquirt on a Eclipse GSX and thought it was great although, it was pretty buggy.

My new shop's construction should be over in a few months and shortly after that, I'll start the vehicle. We should keep in touch, maybe we could do our builds around the same time and at the same pace?

I was panning on doing as much of my own work as I could. Unfortunately it looks like I have back surgery in my near future. I am still planning on doing the swap but will likely have to farm most of the work out now. I am very interested in other 6.0/6l80 projects also and read every one I come across. Did you buy a swap kit or are you fabbing your own? What drove your decision to not go with VVT?

Thinking of doing the Intellitronix digital dash. Tired of squinting at the dimly lit stock unit.
