Doesn't removing the "free play" = "more responsive" than stock?Altimat said:Tightening a throttle cable doesn't add responsiveness, it just removes free play that shouldn't have been there in the first place. One thing I notice more than any additional responsiveness is that the rev's drop to idle slower after releasing the pedal.
Throttle response is usually referred to as how quickly the engine responds to pedal input.Thus factors such as cable tightness, atmospheric conditions, and in the case of carbs more than F.I fuel mixture(since most F.I. systems are computer controlled) all relate to an engines throttle response.Altimat said:Not in my book. Throttle response begins when the throttle plate opens. Pedal response maybe??
akima said:I hooked up a boston 10" sub with a JL 250 amp. The amp is bolted to the back seat back and taps into the rear speakers. On the head unit I turn the bass to 0 and adjust the sub via the amp. I also had my trunk dyno matted. It did make the trunk lid heavy so when you pop it open it just opens slightly. THey show you how the hook up works at the JL web site.
