Good for you. A friend of mine did it to my truck in the dorm parking lot soon after I bought it and long before I started using the forums. I had no idea what he was doing until he explained it to me.

It doesn't add horsepower. Just makes the pedal have better initial response. You should have been able to power break it before then since the zip ties shouldn't have affected it.

Yeah, the mod just compensates for cable stretch.

i didn't think that it was adding horsepower but it sure took up the slack in the cable and is opening up the throttle body quicker and the linkage is moving farther back to increase accelleration.
