i sugest you try megasquirt for your fuel and spark management

it's a great system and it's cheaper
500$ for a EMS that controls fuel/spark/boost is cheaper then 1500$ for a AEM EMS and 400$ for an electronic boost controller !

How easy is it to figure out? I know you pretty much have to program the entire thing. Is it piggy back or a direct replacement of the stock ECU?

megasquirt is not a piggy back or a direct replacement, you rewire your entire engine bay, you must run wiring to all sensors needed, tps, coolant temp, intake temp, o2, map, etc, then you have to program the unit values so the car will run, ie injector sizing, number of cylinders, required fuel, etc, well worth it! though !
question-"so why did you get an S12??"
Answer-"cause Corvette owners used to hate being molested by my GTI, now that the C6 Z06 is out, I wanted RWD, plus I'm cheap!!"

Like shown in the product advertisement im working on bolt-on harness for the KA single and twin cam. That would make your swap ALOT easier to complete.

Any updates on this project ?

How soon could you have this harness done and ready for me to purchase? I was starting to get iffy about the entire project because of the past complications others have had with the wiring.
