    well ima stop you right now and let you know you have got to do some MAJOR wiring...OBD0 car...OBD2 motor.....ever check out the differences in ECUS and plugs? check out Lowcashracing.com..they make a conversion harness that will save you a lot of time and headaches..

    Instead of rewiring it, you could just put some OBD0 injectors and an OBD0 distributor on the 98 LS engine and use an OBD0 ECU.

    exactly, get a OBD0 dist and injectors, and resistor pack from a junkyard, run a PR4 ecu.

    BTW, I have a PR4 ecu for sale.
