    So I finally graduated from a 2nd gen LX to a 98 Zx2 and let's just say long story short the guy I bought it from was not much of a mechanic. One of the projects I'm tackling today is the cable that goes from the gas pedal to the throttle body. It's been replaced and is too long (I have about two inches of play at the pedal). Is there an adjustment that can be made to fix this or will I have to replace it with a new cable?

    Im not completely sure, but I think you can take the end of the wire cut it off and but the cable end closer.
