Default CURE FOR THE COMMON CLUTCH?!!

i HATE my clutch! i have to push the damn thing all the way to the floor and its about an inch from my brake pedal. im sure i can fab up a clutch pedal arm to move it away from the brake pedal but what can i do to get a shorter clutch engagement?

1989 mustang gt, gt40 heads, cold air intake and full flowmaster exhaust.

shorter engagement is going to require changing the length of the cable. as for moving the pedal, deal with it. if you move it over any further, you will bitch about the dead pedal being in the way.

if its the stock quadrant setup, pull up on the pedal and it will self adjust.
