Hooking up the VSS on an HPF

Does anyone know where the VSS wire from the HPF wire harness gets hooked up in or around the ECU? Its a 6 speed manual.

Hooking up the VSS on an HPF

I would like to do as well. I was originally going to tap into sensor by tranny. But maybe someone with hpf traction control can give us pin out. So we know which wires are VSS

AEM Gen 2 TC = A7 Gnd, A8 Pwr, A9 signal . U will need the TC switch module. Not sure what's kind of circuit is involved inside of it.

I have in my notes that pin 22 on the 40pin black connector on the ECM is VSS. I don't know how I figured this out as I did it a while back and it has not been verified.

24 pin black connector pin 10 is EGT ... For possible wiring into AEM... Still need to identify AEM PIN number and I have a plan to find it if it exists in the HPF hardware version.

As far as I can see VSS is pin B33 on AEM Gen 1. I traced it out from the AEM to the connector on the harness.
