Default Quarter turn throttle. delete plz

Why do you guys like this? I don't know why but it seems like it would give you less control. Just hoping to understand =) Asked before searching sorry.

it shortens the throw by about 1/4 turn, it does not go from idle to wot in 1/4 turn, it should be this way from the factory and a person would never know the difference

Drew is 100% correct... By shortening the turn I feel I have more control as it goes from WOT to closed much quicker.

Thank you very much for the video. That guy really knows his stuff. But OMG that is allot of prep for a 20 dollar part.
Question. Do you have to change or adjust the throttle cable? Mine seems ever so slightly sloppy at the start of the turn of the throttle. This mod now sounds perfect. Can't wait to get one. I have a saw and a bench sled just would need to fab the jig. may give it a go will see.
