I'm doing a gen3 hemi swap and using terminator x max for engine control. I don't think I want to use the electric throttle body because I have a 46re trans. What cable throttle body are you guys using? Thanks, Dave

Just don't ask me how I like it because I'm not finished putting it together.

I didn't want to run an GM TB + adapter. Lots of others have...
BBK also keeps the throttle cable on the driver's side, which I prefer.

These are not mine but gives a good idea of how I will run the throttle cable on our 6.1

something like this...

or this... or something very similar...
I originally bought a BBK for mine, but it was expensive and the sensors didn't match the Terminator X kit I bought. I ended up swapping it for an LS one from Fitech and an adapter plate. It came with the sensors and was a lot cheaper. Looks a little better as well in my opinion. The throttle cable routing is a little awkward, but it works. Word of advice, stay away from the Fitech cable brackets. They're all junk. The Holley version is much better.

Thanks for the replies guys. It gives me an idea of how to set it up. I just need to set up the kickdown cable as well. I'm running the 46re transmission.
