    Ah.....I see my Summit link died.
    You can just Google the info "Lokar 48" LS throttle cable".

    http://www.speedwaymotors.com/search-lokar-ls-1-throttle-cable.html

    There's a cheaper option from Spectre someone else posted before though.
    It's adjustable and costs half IIRC.

    I had the same problem trying to find a cheap alternative and I found that a cable from a mid to late 90's FWD, with the 3100/3400 V6 such a a Monte Carlo or Malibu will work. It is about 32-36 inches long, has the correct end for the LS1 TB. You will need the cable backet for the TB and the firewall opening will need to be modified for the cable attachment. Good Luck.

    Thanks for the info, I just tried to scour eBay trying to find something from a late ninities 3100/3400 engine, maybe a grand am or malibu and no luck

    Maybe someone can figure out a part number and everyone will be able to take advantage of it

    If all else I'll get a lokar cable and trim it to fit....just hate to spend $60-75 + shipping for one if I can get a oem cable from a least popular car for $16-30 that will work

    I think he means the billet bracket, I am finding that all of the lokar universal cables looks like they have to be used with this bracket

    [​IMG]

    Is that the case or can you use the lokar cable with the stock throttle body bracket?

    22619740 < This fits 2000-2003 Malibu 3.1 V6

    22615285 < This fits 1997-1998 Malibu 3.1 V6

    The site I got this from didn't show a part number for 1999?

    Maybe it's the second number? 1997-1998
