Re: 1959 Fleetside Short Bed Project

Truck is looking awesome! I’ll be following.

Not sure the 2011 6 speed will work with your 2002 engine. That trans is controlled by a tcm( transmission control module) that is contained in the ecu. Gm didn’t start using a tcm until 2007 when they changed to the 58x reluctor. Your 2002 won’t be compatible unless you change the reluctor wheel n ecu To one that has an internal tcm... if that’s possible. I’m not sure.

Interesting, I havent read anyhting about not being able to use a tr6060 with a 24x. I will be running Holley stand alone. Not sure if that makes a difference but I will look into it.
