I am installing a Ford Racing version of this. Does going out on the firewall adjuster (counterclockwise) loosen the cable tension or tighten the cable tension?

Double check that it isn't in the intake manifold. It does not belong in the grommet but rather between the grommet and intake manifold.

The engine is all stock. SN Paxton supercharger and ported intakes with 65MM throttle body. That's it for the engine. I just recommend a MSD ignition to keep the spark hot.
