    Oh man smooth like butter, like a new ride, pretty stoked!! My old cable had a rub spot from the K-member and it split from the plactic c-clip part from it binding i guess. I'll post a couple pics soon.

    You may want to wrap a piece of fuel line hose around the new cable in the same position as where the old one rubbed.

    used a rubber band on the quadrant to hold the cable, made life real easy that way.

    It actually was a little longer cable but it was the frpp part, kinda weird but im not complaining cause it's way more roomy and loose.

    I posted earlier that I have the UPR firewall adjuster. What I bought was a UPR "Firewall adjuster, billet quadrant, cable assembly" package they offer.
    All I needed was the adjuster and quadrant.

    If any of you need a free cable you can have this one if you want.

    Just cover the shipping bill and I'll send it to you.

    No, I'll never use it. I only use one type of clutch cable. OEM '99-04 v8/GT cable. Absolutely the smoothest clutch cable on the planet.
