I did the gas pedal mod where it is spaced to take up the slack, raising the pedal. I was doing some thinking about it, and something kind of keeps nagging at me about this. I think that the stock gas pedal setup could have been set that way for a reason, instead of like some posts I have read are saying. I noticed a few posts saying that the wire stretches out, and so now the throttle doesn't open up as much anymore after using it for a while. Well, that makes sense. I have another theory though, and I'm wondering if anyone else was thinking the same thing that I am, too. Could it be that Ford setup the pedal the way they did because the floorboard stops the pedal, instead of the throttle body on the engine? It makes sense to me that the TB stopping the pedal movement puts a lot of stress on that throttle cable when you floor it. I read a couple posts where people said they snapped it after they did this mod. So, that seems to support my theory, at least to that point. But if you leave the setup stock, then the floorboard stops the motion... not the TB, therefore relieving the throttle cable of all that stress of being the stopping point. I don't know. I really like the way the car is more responsive with this mod, but I just think that maybe the stock setup is there for a reason. I figure Ford knows what they are doing for the most part, and I do see the logic of the stock setup. On the other hand, I do see the benefit of the throttle opening up more, obviously. To be honest, I don't think I gain a LOT, but I do feel a little more there than the stock setup. I think idealy, I should install some sort of stop for the pedal included with the spacer, so that something between the pedal and the floorboard stops it slightly before the TB cable would. That, to me, seems to be a complete setup for this mod that would be safer (so TB cables don't get snapped) and you could stomp on it without worrying. How many of you use this mod, and how many of you think it is worthless? I don't know. What do you guys think about my points?
