Default throttle cable?

I'm going to have to get a new throttle cable, is there a specific one to boost hp or tq or a different set up to boost them? THANKS

Throttle cable? Just make sure its the right one for your truck so it opens the throttle body all the way like its supposed to. It won't make a difference in power at all.

Whats wrong with yours?

well down where the peddle is at the throttle cable is sticking out 2 1/2 inches to 3 inches so it wont engaged the throttle till the slack is tighten and by that point its half way floored.
