    Ok.....let me re-phrase; The cable allows the throttle to close all the way and is perfectly snug......however when I (by hand) open it all the way there is slack on the cable....but I think this is how it's suppose to be........(in other words the cable is not suppose to be tight when the throttle is fully engaged (open) right?

    That's correct. There is slack because you aren't moving the gas pedal in the car.

    When you are moving it by hand there will be slack in the line because your not taking the slack up on the other end of the cable. Have someone do it from inside the car and observe. It sounds fine though.

    Great. I appreciate the info gentleman. Just one less thing I have to worry about. BTW I'm almost done with my install. All I have left is the suspension, brakes and exhaust-I have to fix my driver's side SS header by taking it to the welder shop. I tried to install it but it rubbed on the K-member.....seems this was/is a common problem for some LT's.....So I had some hammering fun by beating the applicable area down on the header, but now it clears perfectly.

    yeah, the "by hand" portion of that was a pretty important detail. It's supposed to do that.
