i have a complete chevy nv4500 setup, if you want to keep a manual trans? 6.5 to 1 first gear and no engine adapters required. you can get a 32 spine input for your 231 or run a doubler.

My 2003 is DBW but it came from an Escalade so that may make a difference.

my o3 6.0 is dbw. and the 04 5.3 i had that erin or joescamaro should of bought when it was for sale was also dbw and it was from a truck. I like my dbw. if you want cable look for a van motor. I looked at a 05 van and it had the 6.0 with cable throttle.

my guess is it has something to do with it being a van application that the 05 still had cable throttle.

Do you guys like drive by cable better than drive by wire? I'm doing a 06 5.3 swap and I'm not sure if I want to change it to dbc.

I've been running my DBW for something like 4 years without a single issue. I see no reason to cobble an existing design to go backwards with technology. Throttle response is instantaneous.

What reason does anyone see to revert back to DBC?

Does Erin even need a DBC or DBW? Seems like he could get by with just and on/off switch :)

Didn't get a pedal with my engine/ecu/yada and needed to buy a bigger TB to go with the intake I chose to run. The IAC and TPS are the same for both TB's so no change there. My PCM supported DBC so there was no cobbling. GM sells the bracket that mounts on the truck intake so changing to a LS1TB that's cable driven doesn't involve any cobbling. I guess I would call bending/cutting/welding the DBW pedal to fit where a perfectly fine DBC pedal is already located cobbling They both have thier failure methods, they're both "instaneous", to each thier own I guess.

i will be sticking with drive by cable.i run too much water and i dont want to modify my peddle.

so i almost was going to do the nv4500 and 205 from kevin.but after some research it looks like i have to cut the firewall and will not have a flat skid with a 205.so i am sticking with my nv3550.

anybody know for sure what flywheel i need and bellhousing? from what i gather i can use a flywheel from a 4.8 or a 6.0 w those clutch parts.have to get a hydraulic clutch setup to match mine and a early chevy bellhousing. think i have it all figured out.
my super motor guy ronnie is going to go pick me out a motor next week since i am not home during the week right now..i have 4 to choose from 01's and a 02 5.3 all around 10000 miles.(all drive by cable)
