need help with wiring VSS into a '91

When I got my 91 notch, it was pretty hacked. Have straightened out a lot of the items, but since i am a electronics zero, I was hoping for a little help.

The trans is Tremic built T-5, but it is for a 94-95 with a electronic speedo pick-up. The stock 91 is a mechanical pick with VSS built on to it but it will not fit into my trans. The cable would have to be bent to make it fit and it would not work at that point. I have an Auto Meter Speedo using an electronic pick in the T-5.

The car does not stall, but the idle will hang at about 1800 for several seconds (the high idle is really annoying) and I suspect that not having a VSS signal is probably causing the issue. The connector for the VSS is just hanging there. Is there any way to get the VVS signal to the computer with my set-up? Thanx.

If you have an electric speedo why do you need the cable? Later 96- have an electric only pickup which I put in my 85 when I got rid of the stock speedo and went digital.
