SR20DET guys- throttle cable?

Post by marks510 » 07 Mar 2007 13:39

I got a twin cam cable and its short as hell.

What do you guys do for throttle cables for your SR powered 510?

I used the one that came with the half cut of a Silvia/180SX and just adapted it to the end of the 510 pivot on the firewall. See the gallery under "Grasshopper" for some pics. Seems to work great!!

I used a USDM 240sx throttle cable, same as JDM, but longer!
