I actually have a computer and harness. It's the canbus module cost and what I'll lose on the Hydra but at this point I guess I don't really care about that if it fixes my problem. I assuming it's tune related, then someone familiar with LS tuning should be able to figure it out pretty quick. It's not like the Hydra uses a different language. It seems it's out of my league though. Maybe I should call some local shops. I know one shop 2 hours away advertises a "complete tuning service" including idle and cranking

Canbus functions can probably be done with an Arduino...with the CanBus shield I think total was $70.

The tuning is similar, but requires their own proprietary software.

Borrowing somebody else's tune is a good test to point you in the right direction.

What's the MRS module run at now? I don't want to figure out programming

No longer available. The guy that was working on the project is no longer with the company. They have taken everything for it off their website.

Explains why I can't find it... So how are people doing this without a standalone?

It occurred to me yesterday that maybe my fuel rails become vapor locked (or something???) so the fuel injectors have to cycle through all the air or whatever before I can get fuel. Seems unlikely but it seems everyone has a return system for fueling except me. I essentially reused the stock system on the car side and the stock LS rail on the engine. Do you guys think a return style fuel system will help my hard/no start? How are your systems setup? PS I don't want to use the Radium hanger because I can't spend the money
I run stock returnelss system and don't have those issues. I say try and figure it out before spending that money.

So looking at everyone's opinions here... I'm back where I started, it's either tuning or an electronic problem

I can't see how a tuning issue gives you a random result of 1 of 4 outcomes when you try to start it. That screams intermittent electrical issue to me.

That's what I thought but I've spent many hours digging in my wiring and haven't found shit

Confirmed you can drop the transmission with the motor "in" the car, if you drop the subframe.

Flywheel is coming out for ring gear service since the starter broke off half the teeth on it. Hydra EMS is going in for service too since the MAP reads higher than it should. Also on the list is wiring the cam sensor for more accurate crank position information. I'm replacing the crank sensor too just in case
