Hi, I'm having problems with the drive by wire pedal in my 1.8t swapped car. Anytime suddenly, the pedal just stops working and I'm just fed up. So my question is if I can put a drive by cable throttle body on it, connect the correct pins for the TPS and run with the original DBW ECU? I have searched but have found nothing about it.

Thanks!!

You might be able to do it; but you will have a permenant CEL and EPC light...

Have you scanned your ECM for DTCs with VAG-Com? Might be a dying switch or something in the pedal. A much easier and probably cheaper fix than swapping to DBC.
