are these available for a carburetor? or for LS1 LT1 stlye fuel injection only?
Oooooh, I hate drive by wire. I have an newer acura tl and a brand new toyota sequoia that both have wire throttles. They are always pissing me off. Usually on slight throttle changes. Say Im traveling at a steady speed, then tip the throttle slightly, no real response. Get into the throttle more, a lil more juice but not linear to my movements. So I dig in even more and crap, now she wants to respond, in a big way.
Or another one is coming off the throttle quick, say for a 90* turn then back into it trying to keep a constant speed out of the turn. And no, not fast driving, just regular stuff, you know smooth driving on the steet. Well coming out of the turn I have to try and find the throttle position where its gonna grab, gingerly creep up to it. Not like a mechanical connection where I would be creeping up on the throttle just before the turn is done and it connects seamlessly.
Seems like Im always hunting for the position of the throttle where the computer thinks it should be. Love both cars but hate the drive by wire. JR
Good point!! Yes, both my cars are auto... JRmy wife's car is an acura tsx with a 6 speed manual tranny.i've driven it smoothly and aggressively and never noticed any lag or jerking entering or exiting a corner. are you guys talking about cars equipped with automatic transmissions?
sorry for the hijack,but you've got me curious now.
Any good tuner can tune out the response issues with the DBW.....just ask the Vette guys that have been running them for years.
