ls1 throttle body change

I posted a similar request but I still am unclear as to what I will need to do to swap from a electronic throttle body to a cable operated throttle body. I wonder if I switch and do not use the leads that go to the gas pedal sensor and the two wires that actually control the electric throttle what will happen. Will it have an effect on the tech, shifting etc.

Can anyone tell me where to go to get addl info on this swap. I already spent 800.00 on a wiring harness from FAST to fin out the custom brackets I spent over 1000.00 for will not work with the electric throttle body due to a clearance issue. I'd really like to make the swap but do not want to get into a nightmare situation. PLEASE HELP. Knoxville Tn.

Throttle Body

I'm not an expert, but I think those wires would also control the throttle position sensor.So you would have to somehow have to connect them to the new T.B. Like I said I am not positive.
