Problem with gas pedal after JRSC install.

so i have installed my JRSC and it runs problem free. however. i have a new problem. the gas pedal vibrates like crazy when i pass up 3000 RPM and the higher i go the harder it vibrates. and if i let my foot off the gas pedal as the RPM drops back down the gas pedal makes a loud rattling noise. but of course nothing when i have my foot on the clutch or if the cars in neutral.

do i just need to tighten something up? looking at it i didn't really see anything i could fasten up tighter.

How's the routing on the throttle cable now?

Nice smooth bends, no tension on the housing?

Do you have a LITTLE free play in the inner cable adjustment?

Just a couple of ideas to check....

well its still the same as it was stock. didn't change it any from the original way it was set up. but i'm not sure about free play. is there a way to adjust it on the inside of the car?

I was betting the adjustment was at the throttle body like my Duratec, it's a pretty common way to do it since that's a LOT easier to reach than under the dash or by the firewall.....

Didn't know if the cables got moved during the install, just a guess as to a possible simple cause....

luck!
