Drive by wire pedal and throttle body

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I'm looking to purchase a drive by wire pedal assembly and throttle body. Just wondering about opinions on these options. Will be most probably using a link g4x fury.

350z pedal and tb, used at $350+gst - link lists this tb as one they "support"

Bosch Motorsport pedal and tb,  about $500+gst

A mixture of the above?

Or I can probably get a cheap pedal from something at pick a part. I've heard subarus are good, any other options?

 

Cheers

What size throttle body do you need? Vw pedals are easy to mount and the throttle bodys come in various sizes

I'm looking at 65-70mm, or b there abouts.  I do have to say that the bosch and 350z tbs look quite nice compared to some others :/

link  will run damn near any combo just need to  setup the calibration for the sensors,  some subaru/ nissan pedal  sensors are  a lever arm type so can adapt a standard pedal if needed

 

LS commodore stuff is pretty cheap too, I can get VE commodore pedal for about $90 new (similar mounting to the MSEL one) heaps of throttles available in various sizes

You can get those from pick a part nice and cheap

Options I've looked at are 350Z APS or the RX8 entire pedal. 

The RX8 pedal looked easier to mount up, but then the problem is that the sensor is built into the whole thing. 

So you cant just swap a sensor over if it fails.

So for that reason I'd prefer the likes of 350Z as can keep a spare and swap it over easier.

Yeah, I'd be happy to buy the bosch stuff, just seeing if it's possible to keep the costs down. What are the ve commodore pedals like?

As for the 350z stuff, it seems like it's only  a hundred more to get new bosch stuff, warranty and all.

Never had issues with the ve pedals, just looked now priced at $110+, depending on what space you have maybe look at some of the Nissan or Subaru pedals as they have metal stem which is easy to mod pedal angle/position if needed

Yeah pedal will typically be 6 wire, 2 potentiometers to give failsafe signals to ecu, throttle body is similar setup, normally common up +5v and gnd, so 4 pins for position and 2 for motor,  just need to go thru the e throttle setup in the link software to set the sensor slope, generally wired one upscale one downscale

Have had to replace a Qashqai pedal and a Pulsar pedal recently.  Was pretty rare that we ever had to do a VE pedal - just lots of the v6 throttle bodies.  

Anything GM/LS makes life easy

Anything alloytec v6 onwards seems to be junk, the vz v6 ecus are total garbage, all the LS stuff is pretty reliable electronics wise

Probably anything with a Barra. So 2002-2003 onwards? Or ford territory too I guess. 

complete prick of a thing to get out have to drop the whole pedal box ,column and brake booster plus half the lower dash,  not the easiest to mount either recently pulled one out of a BF for my wagon build

Crikey that doesn't sound ideal! 

 

Bracket wise I thought something like this would have been not too bad to set depth and height..
