    Make sure you also use the correct BBB throttle cable bracket attached on the intake manifold, I found out the hard way.

    Once I installed the correct throttle cable bracket it made a WORLD of difference with your right foot.

    It felt it gain another 100hp!

    Once Kenny finds and locates a throttle cable for his application, I also need one with a correct BB bracket! Kenny, let me know when you find and purchase one, so I can scoop up the leftovers on this thread!

    Are all of you noticing that Kenny posted this in Mike Garrison's vendor forum, for which Mike would have paid a fee to have on our board? This isn't Parts Wanted here, it's an inquiry to a vendor. Kenny, if still looking for Mike's cable, you may want to pm or email him.
