how did the clips get broken?DANSLS1 said:Throttle cable tensioner and cruise control solenoid. And if anybody has a spare cover for this unit, please let me know as the clips on mine are broken off and the dealers only sell the entire unit - $650.
c5 is fly by wire according to a friend who modifies engines for a local company. They have the ability to decelerate faster than we could with our cable/pedal system, or so he says. He has been a porter for about 30 years now, and knows more about gm motors than anyone I ever met. When I first got the GTO he crawled all over that thing like he was a monkey and started calculating possible hp output. He tells me that he is working on a pair of heads for an Australian outfit right now. He also scored me a sheetmetal manifold for my last car.AmesGTO said:Are they saying the C5 or C6 are fly by wire?
I took a good look around my neighbors new GXP this weekend. That is fly by wire. He said it's pretty strange. He doesn't like not getting feedback from the gas pedal.
I've always thought that these problems are really bad battery problems. From programming the PCM in a lot of GTO's and comparing that with programming SS's I have noticed the GTO's PCM is very sensitive to low voltage problems.mistermike said:Given the "interesting" unexplained ECM phenomenon some of us have experienced, I'm not entirely sure I want that thing running the gas. I think it's going to be part and parcel of the LS2, if I'm not mistaken.
Dan, pretty sure yours are the same as ours, the box with the broken clips is the 'Throttle Relaxer' it has one cable going to the TB, one cable to the pedal & the third going to the Cruise Module on the RHS inner guard.DANSLS1 said:Throttle cable tensioner and cruise control solenoid.
