HOWEVER, BE CAREFUL!!! Driving with no VSS signal is NOT a good idea! It kills your shift-point signal, speedometer and odometer, cancels all rear-wheel ABS functionality, trips a CEL and an ABS light, and can really mess with your torque-converter. If you're traveling at a high rate of speed and kill your VSS, it is likely the Torque Converter will release and you'll lose all ability to maintain forward momentum, causing you to potentially roll to a stop in the middle of the highway!!!
Im not doing that mod, I like my speed restriction, lift + high speed= bad news.
The reason i was asking is I just installed an OHC out of a 97 Blazer. A VSS signal is needed for the temp sensor. I guess im not the first to do this, I think captain obvious did it as well. I got everything hooked up, and everything works. I still have to fix the temp sensor. I grabbed a bullet probe from work hoping that it would work. I placed the sensor in my third brake light. Its about 30 degrees off at night, and 10 in the day time. Daytime. Its 62, will read 51. nightime, its 46, will read 22
