Yes it would have worked if the throttle cable was already adjusted to it's max. My '70 C10 Stepside is that way. When I push the gas pedal to the floor, it literally hits the floor. My friend and I bent it a lil, now it goes down further. It all depends on the type of vehicle though. You can make adjustments to the linkage, but that only does so much. When you mess with that too, you also run the risk of screwing with the rpm's while the vehicle is at idle.
'05 Base Coupe, Blue, 2.2L, 5 speed manual, Too many mods to list in this signature. I'll just say insanely loud system, fully upgraded suspension (nothing original), Intake, Full Exhaust from the engine back, Rims, Tires, etc... Give me about a month to get back stateside and pics will be posted in the vBGarage.
