    hmmm because i started a thread about my car having a lack of response in first gear, and people think its because its a electric throttle body... so surely a x16xe throttle body with cable would fit a z16xe engine?

    anyone got a pic of there X engine with the cable?

    A X16XEL throttle body with cable would probably fit a Z16XE but the electronics for the idle control is different (the Z16XE just uses the fly-by-wire throttle for idle control, the X16XEL uses an additional stepper motor).

    I'd say it was too much effort for what it would achieve :/
