Well, I did it, and it really did help a little, I was able to put 2 medium sized zip ties on the end of the cable, and the pedal is more responsive, thanks!

Good to hear.

You can probably add another in a few years once it stretches more.

It should work on all vehicles. What you are doing is adding zipties to the actual cable to take up the slack that has been created over the years.
