Throttle cable mod

I just finished cleaning off my MAF, and it was a noticable difference so I figure why not do a bit more tuning up while I am at it. I am going to replace my plugs (my current ones have a gap of 60 thou) and wires, and I want to do the throttle cable mod. The throttle cable seems pretty straight forward, but when I was searching, the kick-down cable seemed to come up alot. Where exactly is this, and what does it do? and do I need to add zip ties to it as well? (I read somewhere that it is made so that you can adjust it w/o using the 'zip-tie' method??)

Thx in advance,

the kickdown cable is right beside the throttle cable. If you dont space the throttle cable to much you wont need to adjust the kickdown.

How I wish Redrig would show me some more Michele :D
