Just wondering if it's possible to get rid of my quarter inch of throttle slack? Thanks.

You have slack in your throttle cable?... If you look underneath the drivers kick panel, at the top of the gas pedal, there should be a white bushing around the throttle cable and should be sitting in the slit in the metal. Is that bushing in the slot and is the cable tight?

Maybe I worded this wrong, but it can probably be more described as pedal slack. The pedal moves about a quarter inch down before it catches.

Word I fixed this on my car. There's a bracket near the tb that the throttle cables bolt do. you just loosen both of the nuts and you can slide it and tighten it down. I think it tightens the cable when you pull it away from the tb. Don't tighten the cable too much or it'll start to open and give you a faster idle. It feels so much better without slack its so responsive.
