Jason...I didn't see the thread you referenced until after I did the tape mod, so I didn't see it. You should try it. It doesn't require taking apart anything. Just making sure your car is off and basically adding a thin wedge where the throttle pedal goes down and back up. You're just eliminating a fraction of that "free play" your pedal had when you stomp on the gas so that your throttle is engaged a fraction of a second quicker. Check out the posts I referenced -- it'll literally take you like a minute or two to try it out to see if it improves the throttle response. I've been happy with my results.
