    LS1 throttle cable w/stock linkage?

    anybody have any ideas on mating the Lokar throttle cable for the LS1 with the stock '69 Camaro pedal linkage?

    Convert your car to the cable set-up. I think it was found on 67 six cylinder cars and maybe 68-9 also. Im not sure on that. I bought mine several years ago from D&R classics. Call them, Im sure they could get you one.

    Good luck!

    Thanks. I bought one from Rick's. This does the trick. Honestly, I don't know why GM didn't use this for all the V8 cars as well. The cable set-up seems a lot safer. No chance of hanging the throttle open like the other set-up.

    Cool!

    Yea I know, I like the cable too. That linkage was poor engineering if you ask me.
