Whats this cable called

On a HO XJ what is the cable called that goes from the throttle body to the trans? Or does an one know the part # for it? I am upgrading my Renix to an HO head, and the cable on there wont work with the new TB.

Thanks
Chris

It's essentisially a cable that changes line press. in the trans according to throttle opening. Not a kickdown cable like most autos as it has no effect on shift timing, only line pressure. I don't know exactly what the factory parts guide will call it but throttle valve cable or something similar should get you what your looking for. Poss. just find one off a late model at a salvage yard.

You do want to get one. Not using it will most likely spell early death for your tranny.

My 1990 Renix has a cable as well. Is this not a shift kick down? Just wondering cause my tranny is having over heating problems.
