I have a '93 5.0L with an Explorer intake.
The s-bend on the throttle cable bothers me and I've read several failures with this setup.
Has anyone switched the setup on the EFI to operate from the front instead of the back, providing a smoother "U" bend? (I've seen them turn the carb around and run it in a similar fashion, but I know this isn't possible with a standard EFI setup, but it looks like the pivot could be moved to the other side.)

Can you post some pictures / links / how-to's on your setup, please?

Thanks!

Yep, that's what I want to do, but for an OEM (Explorer) EFI.

Has it been done? How?

Rich A, yes Explorer TB, 65mm. It was on there when I bought it, I didn't change it.

Mustang Man, that's what I had in mind, trying to figure out if it's a good idea (has anyone done it) and how they did it.

I really don't like the S-bend the t-cable takes, but I know it's been done thousands of times before, but that doesn't mean there's not a better way. :001_rolleyes:

Rich, THANKS! your explanation is what I'm after.

My intake doesn't have the elbow you're showing. My TB is mounted on the intake and it looks like there is some kind of aftermarket aluminum spacer added (as i said, this is the way i bought it).

I think I'll take the TB off tonight and study it and the bracket a little better.

If anyone has any more pictures, I'd appreciate your input.
