I've been wrestling with fitting the Coyote gas pedal and trying to get it installed on the mount immediately next to the streering shaft. I read about others' mount mods but am trying to use the mount provided by FFR.

In order to get the pedal to fit and clear the steering shaft, I had to do a little more trimming of a pedal assembly than what is in the instructions. My concern is that I cut a little too much, as a red section of the pedal assembly is now showing as viewed in the photographs.

I don't think this is any type of wire or electrical linkage, but the red section, which almost looks like wire insulation, makes me nervous. Does anyone have an opinion and/or can anyone confirm if I cut too deep into the assembly?

Thanks!

I’ve never opened on of these up to see how they work. If no one knows I guess you’ll find out when you turn the engine over whether the throttle works or not.

I don't know. That's looks like a little too deep to me. Don't have any frame of reference for saying so, but would be concerning IMO. Especially considering how important that piece is. It's possible to install without cutting that deep. This is the one I modified for my Mk4/Coyote build. Worst case, they're not particularly expensive: Pedal CR3Z-9F836-E | TascaParts.com.

Work the pedal and see if anything moves. If not, put a tape patch over the hole and cover with RTV.

The pedal’s movement is unobstructed and I covered the opening. We will see how it goes... Thanks for the input, everyone!

I had to take some of the ear off, but I also moved the mount plate up about a 1/2”, because not only did it interfere with the steering shaft, but the body cross-piece right below the gas pedal. It really was right, but it did the trick.

Edward, Hi! A quick one...Tire pressures, front and back?

Lokar makes a Coyote Drive-by-Wire set-up. Expensive, but easier.

For my street driving, I set them at 22 PSI front, 24 PSI rear, cold. Some will go a bit softer, including when tracking.
