Default LSA fly by wire for AP427 - how to connect

Ok so it's time to get the accelerator pedal connected to the LSA and I'm just sussing out hardware options and open to advice on the best way to achieve this.
Any help appreciated.
I also need to get a fuel pump and filter set up sorted. Any recommendations?
Cheers
Scott

bosh 044 external pump or even 2 for high hp engines and for the drive by wire I used the pedal out of a ve commodore I got my motor from and modified it to match up with the tilton pedal

Pedal must match your ecu.

Fuel pump use any (I used Walbro in tank pump) get the corvette filter with built in regulator for returnless system.

Not sure if there are some special parts for ap but this is generic for any car

044s are loud as **** and when you do the numbers they'll pump enough fuel for 700hp. More than this is wank factor and wasting money. Unless you're a dyno princess you really don't need two. Get an in tank pump with swirl pot return and you'll be fine. Surprisingly, the OEMs do have a bit of a clue when they design these things.

the amount of walbro pump failures ive had over the yrs in more than one car has put me off them for ever.. sure the bosh are a bit noisy but ive not had one fail me yet . reason I mentioned two was I thought the op was running a supercharged ls and last thing he needs would be a lean situation . horses for courses :-)

i did mine a bit different to the standard way that's in the Pace manual, removing the need for the bell crank. had to buy a slightly longer connecting rod than standard (2 inches longer i think). DBW assembly is the one that came in the LSA-specific loom/controller/etc kit, which i bought from the states.

That's interesting. How long have they lasted? I have had 2 previous turbo 6 cylinder cars with them. Both for about 2 years with no problems before selling the car. Pretty much everyone modding those type of cars was using them and had been for years.

I did read on the net there were some Chinese knock offs doing the rounds but not sure if that's true or not.

Agree about the supercharger, leaning out would be a disaster!

I had a couple let go on my turbo skylines prob 2 over a 3 yr period and my son had a brand new fail on his skyline drift car .. saying that I am going to use the walbro pump that pace supply just because its there but if it fails a bosh will be going in . I am aware there are fake bosh pumps out there as well everybody wants to scam a buck out of ya pocket it seems nowdays
