Default Tac problem

Hello everyone I got a problem if anyone could help. I did a 5.3 Drive By Wire swap in a 1964 Chevy truck. The truck don't start when I have the TAC MODULE Box plugged in. When TAC is plugged in the fuel pump relay chatters and wont start. But when I unplug the TAC MODULE it starts right up. QUESTION when I first put it in it all worked fine then just quit out of no where. Do the TAC MODULES quit out of nowhere

I also have a 1950 Chevy Truck I'm putting a 2000 5.3 into. Check out LT1swap.com he has the pinouts all listed for the harness.

Guys ^^ the best 70 bucks I ever spent on my build was to buy the factory shop manuals for my donor car off ebay. Granted 3/4s of the F body books is useless for a Miata but the rest is priceless!

Yes. Here is a link to my thread. I'm not very far along yet. I just started on the suspension. Engine comes next.

Lets move our chat over to my build thread so we don't clutter the swap guides sticky with unrelated posts.

But I did use a Fatman Fabrications Mustang II IFS.

Anyone got any advice on a 2002 ls1 / 4l60e swap into a 1973 Impala. What headers, motor mounts and accessory brackets to use? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Hey forum I'm new to this but this far I like this. I am thinking about doing a engine swap to my 2004 Lincoln ls v8 with the ls1. The Lincoln ls has the jaguar engine and the two engines look identical. To me when I look at both they look exactly the same. Just the valve covers are shaped different. What I would like to know is would the ls1 fit into the body of the Lincoln ls? I know I would have to modify the motor mounts. As far as transmission and pcm and other electric components would I have a lot to take on?

Can you swap out the factor Lincoln ls 3.9 motor and transmission with the ls1 motor and trans? They both look identical, and would I have to swap the pcm out of the Lincoln or rewire a ls1 pcm?
