good luck finding a VGT controller.

might be better off converting your top end to LLY. then you can run what ever turbo you want

Yea but why LLY turbo vs an aftermarket? Seems easier to just go aftermarket than to make a LLY turbo work on a lb7.

I already have the turbo for free and I'm open to the challenge so its easier to me to try to make what I've got work. Than shell out 2k on a different one.

What would be helpful is take advice from those who me posted above that you will have a very hard time doing this yourself.

Those controllers haven't been made for a long time. I wish they would release the specs and let someone else make them. I wouldn't mind a stg2r sometimes.
