408 iron pig (yeah, in a sky)

My project has been slowly coming together and I finally got the bulk of everything into the car on Saturday.

-6.0 silverado iron block bored and stroked to 408. 11.1 forged this that and the other thing

-t56 transmission. lightly built and assembled by yours truly. It was my first so we shall see how many gears I can actually get it into haha.

I used performance autowerks mount kit to the thing in there.

It's been too freaking hot during the day to work on wiring and I can't see jack squat at night so I just slapped on a carb setup I had laying around jut so I could hear then damn thing fire up.

What is the plan for the ECU on this?
Can the stock GXP ECU be configured to run the LQ4?
Or can an 58X LS ECU be integrated into the car BCM etc.?

I'm using an E67 ecu set up by Carputing.

The E67 came in the 2007 NA sky and is a common computer used in lots of v8 platforms out there. I know NA skys of later years used a differnet computer but from what I gathered those can also be used. Just make sure to match the harness to the ECU as you can run into issues like not having enough ECU plugs haha

The GXP (and SKY redline) ECU wont work for this situation.

The only computers that anyone supports integrating into the sky BCM (that I am aware of) are the ones that require a 58X crank signal as they are found in later model GMs.

When I ordered the stoker kit I made sure to get a 58X reluctor stuck on the crank that they sent me.
