E-Throttle - Advantage to matching the accelerator and throttle motor?

Are there any perceivable advantages in matching the throttle motor on the engine to the accelerator pedal in the cabin?

 

Right now I have a Dodge VDO throttle body on my 1jz VVTi and need to purchase an accelerator pedal unit with the position sensor.  I am considering an accelerator unit from a Nissan 350z.

My go to pedal is the 04-05 Subaru sti pedal.

Can be had on ebay for about $40.

Thanks Brad, great suggestion.  I looked them up and they look great from a packaging perspective and nice looking with the metal cover.  I ordered one of these on ebay for $17 from an auto recycler.  What do you do for a pigtail?

 

 

I also ordered the 350z pedal unit ($25) being that I know others have done a retrofit in my chassis with them previously, so I have options that way.

Brad,

 

The LINK help file doesn't appear to have the Subaru pedal pin output.  Do you have a wiring diagram for this accelerator position sensor?  EDIT: I ended up with a 2008-2014 pedal unit.  my mistake in reading last night but it still looks like it should work great.
