Don't know what fly by wire is. The L26 has only 5k on it. Just spun a bearing on my L36. Want a low mileage replacement.

Forget it. Far too much trouble, unless you only want the bottom end. Fly by wire means no throttle cables. It'* a servo-actuated throttle body. Your PCM doesn't support it, and your TB won't simply bolt up.

There is no advantage to the aluminum upper if you've done the L36 APN or Dillon UIM.

You messed up your quote. For the record, I didn't say the last line quoted.

Karl, last I checked, you still have an APN UIM. And there'* very likely nothing wrong with it.
