You have a few options when it comes to choosing how to stuff air and fuel into your GM LS engine. You could go for the nostalgic intake manifold and carburetor combo, or you could choose to go with the late model stock look of a throttle body. If you choose the latter, the question becomes:
Which throttle body is right for your project?
You should watch the video below for the full explanation of your options, but here is the quick run down of some parts you need to run the different types of throttle bodies:
Drive by Cable Throttle Body
- Throttle Cable
- Drive by Cable Throttle Body
- Fuel Injection System OR Wiring Harness
Drive by Wire Throttle Body
- Throttle Pedal
- TAC Module
- Wiring Harness
- Drive by Wire Throttle Body
I want to use a cable throttle body. Is there a specific LS motor I have to use? Do I need to specify that I want to use a cable throttle body and do I need a different wire loom to get the motor started?
i recently purchased a 2010 L94 out of a denali, it had drive by wire but none of the harness or computers came with it, or the pedal. What electrical parts do i need to make this engine run again. I understand i need VVT delete kit and DOD delete kit.
I’m doing a ls swap into my 1976 Chevy c 10 and I have ordered a drive by cable throttle body. I have taken the OEM computer to a speed shop to have the it flash reprogrammed. Do I need to take it back to have the program changed to work with drive by cable?
