I just finished mine. North Texas Power Stroke Association - DIY AIC Mod

I ordered the pot and relays from digi key. and just picked up the switch from a local auto parts store. Make sure you can solder half way decent.

Digi Key part numbers

2 relays Z785-ND
1 pot GU2021S26-ND

And at the auto parts store, pick up some stake on connectors for the relays!
Other than that, it is pretty easy and straight forward

Good Luck

You can also do it the el-cheapo way......get yourself a manual carb choke cable, screw a bracket behind the throttle pedal and you got yourself an AIC. Safe no but it works.

Sorry, but these pedals have wires coming out of them, not small throttle cable!

I know that. You attach the cable to the pedal and pull down the pedal.
