Default Mercury DTS/Verado question

Can you setup Mercury DTS motors like the new Opti's and the Verados to use normal Livorsi throttle/shoft units? What about a standard hydraulic helm?

Hello Greg,
The helms are already hydralic and why on earth would you want to go back to cable shift and throttle? Once you drive a fly by wire boat I think you'll never go back.

Greg there are Merc Zero Effort/ Lavorsi style throttle for Verado's...my boat has them. Once you experiance the Verado system you will never want cable throttles again!
