Finding exactly what you need for your custom build can be a daunting experience. With the popularity of LS-swaps becoming more and more attractive to builders and weekend-wrenchers, the aftermarket must make strides to continue with support. In an effort to keep our bowtie enthusiasts up to date with the latest news and parts, we found Chevrolet Performance’s LS9 controller kit; readily available and ready to ship on the TheBLOCK.com through ChevroletPerformance.com.
TheBLOCK.com has a habit of showcasing various products offered up through the Chevrolet Performance line. This week, we were greeted with the LS9 Controller kit (PN 19299462). According to TheBLOCK.com, the LS9 Controller Kit is, “A precisely calibrated engine control module is essential to making your fuel-injected LS engine perform in your older vehicle – and Chevrolet Performance is your source for controllers that are designed for easy, ‘plugand-play’ installation and, in most applications, no need for third-party tuning adjustments.”
These inclusive kits from ChevroletPerformance.com deliver everything you would expect to get your project running including, the controller, wire harness, mass airflow sensor, oxygen sensors and even the throttle pedal assembly to match the electronic throttle. Even if you little to no experience with this setup, the kit includes detailed instructions, making the setup and finalization quick and easy.
- Two oxygen sensors
- Two oxygen sensor mounting bosses (for installation in the exhaust system)
- A mass airflow meter
- A mass airflow meter mounting boss (for installation in the air intake system)
- A throttle pedal assembly (for use with the electronically operated throttle)
- A complete wiring harness with fuse box
- The programmed controller
- An instruction sheet
The best part, unlike production controllers that may or may not come with a used engine, these specific controllers are calibrated for installation in older vehicles. That means many of the features required for late-model production vehicles are “turned off,” because they’re not required in older cars and trucks. That means features that may trigger a diagnostic trouble code and possibly affect performance or require additional third-party tuning are not enabled. The LS9 Controller Kit is a true stand-alone system, only requiring the power and ground sources, a high-pressure fuel pump and electric fan to get the vehicle running. Additionally, it’s also programmed for easy use with a Chevrolet Performance’s automatic transmissions and includes a SES (Service Engine Soon) LED indicator embedded in the fuse box.
