I don't know anything about the AEM solenoid, so I can't say for sure. My guess would be that it would work fine. You'll need to figure out what ports are equivalent to the GM solenoid, hook it up and give it a whirl. The ECU+ manual lists a very specific procedure for setting up the solenoid and slowly testing whether it's working as needed - follow that to the letter and see what happens.

How did this go? I have the aem as well and have debated on doing this.
