There isn't a kickdown on an electronically controlled automatic tranny. There isn't a kickdown on a manual tranny.
The kickdown should be a metal rod/lever/shaft, and not a cable.

If you've got two cables attached to the throttle, the first is the gas pedal and the second is your cruise control. Follow it and you'll probably end up at a round looking thing that is probably green, iirc. It goes where the turbo would normally be, if we had them.

Kick your Kia-owning friend in the head for me. :)

Oh. If you want your throttle to open faster, push your foot down faster.

Some cars use a non-round (has a lobe, like a cam shaft) throttle linkage thingy to increase the off-idle throttle advance, making you think you've got more power than you really do.
