Tube that is awesome, very well done. Hey I noticed your in Ann Arbor, I'm in Howell. Maybe we could meet up and you can show me how to do this. That way I'll only hold you for $25 and not the full $50...joking

Nice pics! I sorta wouldnt feel safe doing this, what if you over adjust and soon the wires hit and you go out of control?

The ECU calibrates the throttle pedal every time you start the car. That's why it has 6 tracks, there are really 3 different sets of + and - carbon slides. I'm guessing it averages all three of the inputs and it zeros itself on start up within a certain range.

You really can't screw it up, short of breaking the wires off. The only thing you're trying to do is move them forward about a millimeter to get them off the brass backed carbon, and onto the actual resistance sensing part.

Would it be possible for you to label all of these "2mm" direction and "onto" "off of" directions? Then make a diagram of how the original brushes look in paint and where the after will be.

Seriously this is an INCREDIBLY important mustang mod, but also one that nobody wants to screw up. Labeling is a godsend here. Be very specific.

Finally, how was idel and low speed manuvering affected?
