Default How to LS3 DBW TB to LS6 pcm

Hey Guys!

As the title says, how can i let this happen?

Have bought incorrect gold blade LS3 TB nib which i will use on a Fast 102 LSX/R IM and combine with TB harness adapter from casper to my LS6 pcm, did this work?

I know about different readings, heard the one reads 0-5V up, the other the opposite way 5-0V but this can be changed in the pcm from the tuner on the dyno, correct?

Installed new LS3 TB on car with harness, it all works and opens full, but after 1sec.wot i got limp mode, engine power reduced and blade on TB fully closed abrupt, so there is something wrong, who knows the details here?

Thanks in advance,
Ron

I don't know the answer to that question.

Someone in the PCM tuning and diagnostic forum might. Maybe you can post the question there or a mod will move the question to that forum.

Sorry man you'e sort of SOL on this one. Ls3 gold blade tb open in the opp direction older throttle bodies. That' why the car goes into limp mode there's no real way around this. You need an 05-07 SILVER BLADE throttle body to work with it. However ifbyou have a 102 manifold already I would skip all that and get a 102 tb really no reason not to. They tune just fine if you have a decent tuner

you can buy all of those things much cheaper. I had no where near 1k in going to a 102 setup. It would be worth more than 5whp as well. Howeer When it comes to the ls3 unit not working that's a fact you'e going to need the ls2 silver blade.

youre welcome for the help btw, since no one else here could give you an answer

WARR Performance makes 102 TB's that are less than $150 and of good quality. They will need the correct IAC and TPS sensors for the the application. I've seen NW 102 for under $400 a few times.

Good luck

Oops I was definitely thinking fbody cable drive type.

$629 at Texas Speed or BTR was the best of the drive by wires prices I saw.
