i had it explained to me one time, it has something to do with how the throttle is applied, something like w/o drive by wire it is physical pushed by hydrolics or some other means, but with drive by wire it done electronically? i think that is right, but don't be afraid to call me retarded confused wink thumbsup

DBW is electronic, and throttle cable is as said, a tensed cable that when pushed,(accelerator) Opens and closes the throttle body!! DBW is electronic and hydraulics, and you cant use a power fc becuase the celi chip overrides the fc!!

DBW uses the stock ECU to control the throttle, the Power FC at this point isnt capable of doing that
