    yea, follow the throttle cable back and over the intake manifold...you should see a little black box that's about 1"x1" in the cable line. The top pops off if I remember right and you can adjust the cable in there.

    Yeah, I happened to stumble across that adjustment. It did bring the buttefly down a lot, but its still about an 1/8th of an inch off... car is idling at like 2500... any other way to cheat that sucker down? I tried unbolting the mount and cheating it up, it worked, but i lost 1/2 my pedal... so i moved it back, and im still idling at 2500

    Best advice is to just ditch the spacer, they don't do jack for a dry manifold...for a carb/tbi yes they work great.

    It is not electric or there would be no cable (like the new vettes). Call the nos spacer manufacturer and see what they say you need to do with their kit.

    My bbk tb came with a new bracket to mount both the cruise and throttle cable. It was bent towards the tb about 1/2 inch to make up for the spacer.
