I bought the lokar bracket and cable. I tried the stock mustang cable by fabricating a bracket, but it popped off on the freeway one time That's no fun. At that point, it became obvious that the lokar setup was worth the money.
I made a bracket to secure cable to the manifold. Used the stock mustang gas pedal but redrilled the pivot pin hole so it had move movement once pedal was shortened.Similar to the brake pedal mod. Otherwise you end up with a too sensetive of a throttle.
I am using the braided Lokar cable with the spoon throttle pedal since my build is non-donor. Thus far it works well (100 plus miles of go-karting). I found the pedal to help with foot-room/pedal-placement since I have not bent my pedals.
I used a stock Mustang cable, and ran it around the front in a nice, gentle arc. You have to hook to the bottom of the linkage since you're coming in from the front. Then I made a bracket from a length of aluminum strap. Works so smooth I don't even use a return spring on the linkage, just the existing spring on the cable. No issues in almost 10k miles.
What about this stock style cable braket-is there anyway to cut it or extend the bracket to make it work.
I dont have a particular preference for what side i attach the throttle cable to, but the dual fuel inlet line must be on the passenger side.
Here is a pic of the bracket and my new intake. The intake has a threaded hole on either side, so i guess it will just be whichever side will be easiest. I had it running on the passenger side with my mass flo system. Note: I guess this will also work as a sneak peak at my new injection system.
Thanks everyone. I am trying to avoid spending more money right now if possible. So, an altered stock cable bracket would be ideal since i can pick one up at pull a part.
It looks as though i can just drill one of the holes out larger and then mount it to the intake. HOwever, that leaves me with a few questions:
Will it extend out far enough to the side?
Will it be too far forward or too far away to work effectively.
So, has anybody attempted to modify the bracket to work?
STI-do you know where i could find a picture of that bracket?
