    GM and Shelby had it working!
    This is not some program I worked up.
    I am about 75% sure GM ran this PCM in a FWD Northstar. It never made it to the road, but I think this is part of the 00 to 03 technology.

    Its good to see that things are progressing when it comes to this engine. I often wondered why GM considered this engine to be a performance engine but never tried to increase its hp. Now I see they did.

    Has anyone bought one of the Series 1 crate motors with wiring harness and PCM to see if this is indeed true?

    WTF

    I have a harness and PCM coming from a E-bay seller. I bought the Harness and PCM from the only one that had one listed with the engine. The Kit did not sell so I got the harness and PCM. He had only one more setup. Also he said he was the only one that got the engine, PCM, Harness, Clutch, and Bell housing.

    I have had this program on my PC for about a year. I have gone back to it several time and looked it over. I have not had the schematic I will by the end of the week.
    I have made countless calls to get this information, but the Shelby Series one is a mess. I don't think any one other than the plant had the schematics.

    I got the harness today and I am almost done with the schematic.

    I paid BIG dollars for the PCM harness. This is nothing under the hood. All I got was stuff inside the car and the PCM connectors. I have no engine harness

    Not sure about which it was designed for... But the first car that you could buy Magnaride in the world was the 2002 STS. Corvette lovers had to wait until the next model year.

    While we are all busy hacking up and swapping PCMs

    Has anyone considered what it would take to convert a CVRSS car to a Magnaride one?

    Lets say I have a set of bad CVRSS shocks and will have to spend a fortune on new shocks anyway... Magnaride would be cool...

    Hint HINT!
