Unscrewing (out towards you) brings the pedal engagement up, screwing it in moves it further towards the floor. You could also just do it and get in the car and see how it feels lol. Every firewall adjuster I've ever used has notches so you can count how many "clicks" in or out you've gone and keep track of where you are at. Can't speak to any possible ebay special you might have but my Steeda unit does as do all the others I've played with.

There are likely 2 or 3 hooks on the quadrant. Yoga yourself under the dash and have a gander at it and see what's up.

First make sure you have the cable routed right. Also did you get an OEM replacement cable or the MM OEM style one or something else?

Free one from a friend, those are the best. I believe it's a steeda.

My setup is spec 3+, stock flywheel, stock cable, fiore microclick and steeda 3 hook quadrant. Just tap the pedal and slam the next gear.

Teamed with the wot box and mgw I have perfected wot shifts, even in cars without a wot box.
