You know how the throttle cable in the celica takes one big loop around the engine bay before it ends up at the throttle body? Well, I guess he's trying to mod the throttle body so the cable can made shorter. I'm just interested to know how he's gonna do it.

well actually I took the short cable off of a 94 camery. The cable coming threw the firewall to the linkage boxd right next to the battery. Just using that cable i fabricated a bracket that bolt to my TB. I also used the spring and butterfly peice (where the cable connects to the TB) then i took the short cable and made a loop and attached it to my newly made bracket. Then to the TB it works great once i get some extra time i will take pics hopefully later today or tomorrow. It does take a little adjusting to get everything just right but it works great. I also took the egr vavle off and blocked off most of the vaccum lines i didnt need. Pretty much Jdm made out of a usdm. will have pics soon i know ther are some people interrested in cleaning up the engine bay

whats the advantage to having a shorter throttle cable? better throttle response?

cable length doesnt change the engine power at all ( if its properly installed ) so 7ft cable to and 30 ft cable will be the same. as long as the tps shows full sweep
