took about 20 minutes...

just make sure you don't cut too big a piece of tubing for the spacer, 2 zip tieces, a blade for the tube, and that's about it. i'd deff recommend disconnecting the throttle cable from the t/b to give you more slack.

its a great mod. do it. the pedal is going to be Very touchy now so be careful buts is a great mod. I love it. I got some really good Clear directions for you. The one from Mustangworld sucks. I couldn't understand that one for ****. The install is hard the first time. At least it was for me because it was frustrating. But then once you get the hang of it, it is really easy. And im pretty much mechanically challenged and i did this mod. is really easy. So if i can do it you can do it.

Full Throttle - 99-04 throttle cable adjustment/fix

here is another one. Ford Racing Bullitt Pedals (Manual)

This shows you at the end of the video. This video makes the Directions super clear on what to do. I used Plastic tubing instead of a nylon spacer because i couldn't find a Hose clamp that would fit around the nylon spacer but the nylon spacer would be best for the job. Also a trick to making the job a whole lot easier is to Put some type of tubing in the throttle body lever. im not sure what it is called but here is a picture. This will allow the cable to be longer in the driver compartment so you can slip the nylon spacer around the cable easier.





here two different images. tried to make it show up better with the orange tubing. You need to hold it open with something though. It will make the install so much easier. And don't forget to take the tubing out before you start the car.

i just did the pedal one. it just feels like a little sticky when i first step on it. it's like it just needs to be pushed a little harder to get it started...
