    I'm assuming I might have hood clearance issues on my 76 with the truck intake/TB... I'm wondering what you guys are using and did you stick with drive by wire or go with a cable?
    Thanks in advance!!

    Can't speak to the truck intake. Check over on LS1tech. I've used DBC and DBW on LS swaps. Both work well. Depending on the year of of your truck engine you need to get the DBW "box" I believe its on the firewall. Has to match the pedal and throttle body.
    Or you can convert to a DBC throttle body. If you use a truck intake I believe they were all DBW so you might have to fab a bracket for the DBC cable.

    But make sure you get the "black box" that integrates the pedal to the DBW throttle body.
