This weekend's attempt at cleaning her up failed so since I slept all damn day yesterday I decided to do it this morning after work.

Just the usual, wash, dry, jams, wheels, tires, windows....engine bay's already clean go figure. :lol:

Paint's holding up very well, I'm glad the 2K respray is at least sticking great after a year and a half and about 35K miles. I think it needs buffed but I am a moron.

Even if you were to replace it, it's a quick repair and it makes a nice difference. Ask Greg, Ben or Josh, they drove my car on the old cable and all 3 complained about hard the pedal felt compared to their cars. It made a huge difference when I replaced mine (it was kinked for some odd reason).

Would you have to replace the cable from the pedal to the Throttle Body or just from the firewall to the Throttle Body.

Looks like FCP has it for $43

It's all one cable, you start at the throttle body, work your way to the firewall and push the end of the cable through the pass through. Then you hook it up to the pedal. At least that's how I did mine and I think it took less than 30 minutes, including removing some parts that were no longer needed on a manual.

Tasca has it for less than $43, I think. I paid less than that for mine.
