I attempted to post GM connector pinouts for the transmission harness in a 97 and 02.  While wire colors are a little different, pin locations and circuit numbers are the same.  The same components are on the same pin, so it LOOKS like it would plug up and work...but I'm NOT a swap expert.  It's gonna bolt up and wire up as far as I can see, but proceed with caution. lol

so my 6 year old has his first pinewood derby coming up. I was planning on going all out and having a hand in the process but after talking with @Mike, I decided to let him do it himself. For a boy who has pretty much zero patience, he blew me away. He didn't care for all the sanding but was very happy cutting and painting. The only thing I did was put the tape on for him to paint and give a little guidance here and there. I don't think he cares about winning or losing at this point, he's just happy with what he built.

My Random Thought/Rant

Why in the hell was GM so damn stupid to tie the damn stereo to so many other things that its nuts to have to buy some crazy ass interface to make an Aftermarket unit work?

No, it didn't.  And it sounded like much less HP.   Maybe it will get track time to prove the numbers.

Pretty impressed with the mileage. 24.8mpg going to Dickson from White House and 19mpg in the city.

Wow, that's incredible for a 4wd.  My 2wd ram barely gets 17 on the interstate.  My wifes 4x4 5.3/6l80e tahoe might get 19.  I'm starting to think about a new truck and this will be very tempting to buy a newer direct injection GM.
