Default Cam Sensor rewire LS3 in 98 Trans Am

I put a LS3 in a 98 Trans Am and it keep loosing the cam siginal. I spoke to the guy I got the motor from and he has I had to switch 2 wires around on the cam sensor to make it work properly. He could not remember which 2 it was

Is there a diagram or does anyone know which 2 wires needs to be swapped?

The motor had the 24 tooth reluctor wheel.

Swap the 2 outermost wires on the connector. I don't remember the colors offhand. Just leave the middle wire alone and reverse the outers and you will be good to go!

And be sure it has a 1x cam sprocket also.

That seemed to work, Thank you.

BTW, It was the Brown and Red wire that needed to be swapped.
