Question Adjusting gas pedal?

Ok so a while back I saw an article about adjusting the gas pedal to have more control of accleration but I can't find it. On my truck as soon as it clicks it jumps and acclerates to around ten mph it's a little annoying when I'm trying to go below that. Does anyone have this problem also? How do you adjust it?

pedal controls a potentiometer. throttle position sensor. as far as more control. i assume you are looking for a way to increase the throw ratio of the pedal-sensor. increase the distance between the sensor and pivot point.

The only way to adjust it is in the tuning. Maybe the pedal itself needs replacement. They are about $120 at the dealer IIRC

I found the article. It was on that sticky great info for obs. I guess you have to bend the medal thing that depresses the acclerator. I'm gunna go try it.

you not a optimistic person or do not understand my reply or have trouble with mechanical comprehension. heck just throw a heavier return spring on the pedal. a longer ratio will give you a better control of the input. take the bend out of the pedal add some length to it. take it to ih and have progressive shift enabled if it is a manual a auto would drive you a bit mad with progressive shift.
how is it down through the tuning? how do you change inputs without changing hardware?

Worked for me. That along with cleaning up around the pedal and sensor. Add a little lubricant. Big improvement.
