Hi all.

I happened upon an M54B30 Throttle Body in a scrap yard when I was buy my 17" 5er wheels and the guy generously let me take it for nothing.

On closer inspection, the TB seems to be wire driven rather than the traditional cable.

My question is this, is it possible to convert the TB from wire to cable so that I may fit it to my M52B25 engine?

Cheers

Yes. Apparently.
It must be a popular search as I only typed 'convert drive by' when google auto completed for me.
Lots of videos showing it done (not watched them, so no idea how good they are).
Search for 'drive by wire elimination kit' and we find it is so popular that car mod shops sell kits!
A very popular conversion it seems :)
