However the EMPI braided throttle cable improved my throttle feel..and combined with two external throttle springs and a Karl_F roller throttle fitting has totally transformed my accelerator pedal response.. My butterflies now snap shut on my 40s!
Only EMPI item I would say proves the rule as above!
