DBW/Digital Dash

I am building a 46 chevy truck with an LS1/4L60E, was wondering if anyone has used the DBW system. Also was thinking about using a digital dash gauge setup. Any information on this would be greatly appreciated.

If the donor engine is DBW and your using the OEM PCM than the DBW should work great. Lokar is now making a DBW peddle assembly: Lokar: Drive-By-Wire Electronic Throttle Control Pedal Assembly.

Same deal on the dash, I adapted a late Camaro gauge panel to work with my '98 GM 3.8liter v6 PCM in my Volvo! All the sensor wires are there in the PCM, you just have to hook em' up to the gauge cluster.

Do not know what the donor was. It came from a 2002 Camaro. But going to have a new PCM made for the engine.
That should work?

GM performance parts sells a stand alone PCM for the engine and the tranny.

Dakota Digital sells electronic gauges VHX series I have them in my Camaro and they look like they should be OEM, they use needles for that classic look.

VHX Analog/ Digital Gauges
