Default Throttle body swap

I'd like to do a throttle body swap. I know about the Geo/Isuzu TB but can't find one. Unless there is some one out there willing to sell me one. Anyhow what other TB work with our sensors. I don't mind a bit of machine work or electrical to make this happen.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Pretty sure this is the small one, should be a nearly direct fit with minimal modification required: https://www.ebay.com/itm/52mm-SOHC-G...4AAOSwIM9bJIMK

The DOHC TB is the larger one, requires modifying our intake manifold hole as the stock S-Series TB fits inside the Storm DOHC TB.

One or the other or both also require relocation the throttle cable about 2" higher than the stock location.

The Geo Storm TBs will work, however, will only produce 80% throttle through the TPS and require fabrication of a throttle cable bracket.

As Fetch stated, the SOHC(52mm) TB is the easier choice because you don't have to port the intake manifold.

Is there any way to get the to 100%?

It's not like it needs more gas pedal travel, cause with cable off, wot only goes to 80%
