Wow, you didn't spend all that much time with the external trigger!

Nope, with the external trigger the ICM does all the work. The problem with the external trigger is that it costs 150 bucks.

Default LX9 Reluctor decoded

I spent a good part of the day researching the LX9 reluctor and it'* events. It is in fact the same reluctor as the LS1 (it has the same pattern).

The question stuck in my mind is whether or not it has the same phasing (is TDC #1 compression stroke).

From this point on, I will assume that it is.

I started by plotting out the entire reluctor in a word processor.

You can see that I found 72 pulses. 72/3 is 24 events. Which means that each event is three pulses. So each cylinder gets 8 events or 24 pulses. For example, the first event for cylinder 1 is low low high or Y. The next event is low high high or X.
I used the following to determine phasing with the CMP sensor.

And this is the result:

Just the red markings. Ideally, the picture would be of the other side of the reluctor. I'll try to get a different picture so I can show the reluctor spinning in the correct direction.

This can easily be translated to decode a LS1 reluctor (since they are the same). Instead of each cylinder having 8 events, it has 6. So it would decode:
