I am sure you disconnected the battery during the engine replacement, so during that time the ECM will have reset back to factory specs. Make sure you have the cam sensor in sync with the crank sensor, if they aren't, that could cause a no start condition. It is very easy to get it out of sync.

What will I have to do to change engines in my 99 Tahoe from 5.7 vortex to a lt1
