    throttle body cable??

    This may be a stupid or Newbie question, but I just noticed this on my car and other LS1 engines. Why do some people have 2 throttle cables and some have one?

    If you have traction control you only have one cable cause the cruise is run through the TCS unit. Cars without TCS have 2 cables, one for throttle, one for cruise.

    A thanks. I thought I was missing something - Haha.

    Born and raised in Michigan. Farmington Hills & West Bloomfield.

    My Dad's been there for 45 years. I miss it.

    My love for Trans Am comes from MI. He had a 1979 Black Trans Am T-Top, then traded it in for a 1982 Black Trans Am T-tops. Those were the days.

    Is it true what they say about Cali,
    It's the granola bowl, the land of fruits flakes and nuts.

    Not entirely true. Southern California is very diverse and full of culture. It's good and it's bad. You do get an occasional weirdo now and then. I've met some weird people in Michigan too, but not as much as California. And I am pretty sure it has to do with the dense population of people.

    As far as the fruits, flakes, and nut. Cali has them, but Iíve learned how to tolerate them and stay out of their way.

    California is a beautiful place to live. There is a lot too do, but so damn expensive!

    And there are a lot of hot girls too.
