    yes but not a straight forward swap...

    1 way (the Aussie way) is if you have a LS1 PCM froma VZ Model (2005) has blue and green plugs... then you will also need a TAC module... and then also a FBW convertor box as the hitachi TB's are different to the 6L...

    the other way is the US corvette 2002 Z06 i think it is way.. they run the LS1 411 PCM but not sure exactly on the other details.. there would be others on here who could answer the question better for that.

    so its gonna be easier and cheaper to get a cable throttle probably.

    for sure... by the time you buy a Throttle Pedal, TAC Module and convertor box you will already be over the price of the Cable throttle body... but then the other problem/price you need to factor in ... (only guessing you have done a conversion form 5.7 cable LS1 to 6.0L FBW) need to swap injector plugs, map extension, knock extension, knock sensors and relocation, IAC motor and tps for cable throttle body, reluctor and cam gear change or 58x to 24x convertor module...

    no worries... is it into a commodore or something like that

    we supply those parts all the time.. conversion kits

    if it is a car with the LS1 already in it then stick with the cable throttle body setup...much easier

    E38s can't control IAC.

    Might as well talk to mike@eficonnection.
