LS7 Automatic

I will be replacing my L99 with an LS7 engine. It is saying I need part number
19243066 "ECU" I am wondering if that ECU works with an automatic or should I have my ECU programed to run the LS7???

You can leave your computer in there. Who is doing the swap for you?

That is probably the vette ECM for that engine. Like others said try to make the one you have work first. There are some threads about programming it.

Why do you want to go with an LS7? Not that it is not a badass engine, but you could achieve the same power or more for a lot less money. A cam swap, headers, etc. would probably give you the 500 hp. Or do a stroker build if you really want to, still a lot cheaper than the LS7.

No the l99 has a 15 degree heads and a ls7 has a 12 degree heads.

If you decide to go LS7 route, Frans96SS would be a great choice to do the work. But, you can accomplish same power or more, if you simply add a TVS2300 or TechCo S/C and a set of LT headers on your existing engine and will cost you a lot less and headache free. If you're planning to race, could then build the LS3 and the tranny along the way. But for DD, and normal street driving, keep it under 600 RWHP, before breaking things.

Hope this helps!
Oh btw, if you start going into new engine, you need to save up a lot more money, because you'll need it or your car ends up sitting in a shop unfinished for months. Trust me, I've seen it!
Do your homework first, find out every thing you need, how much for the parts and labor and shipping, before you let someone touch your car.
