Default Best $30 you'll spend

My Sierra has had a rebirth this week - i've had a decent exhaust system and extractor headers put on, and I also bought a K&N filter to allow more mumbo on the intake side of the engine. It's been a great improvement, for a small engine (1.3) the gains have been quite noticeable, and I thought it was $900 well spent.

But, just this morning I noticed my accelerator cable was beginning to fray, so I though I better replace this too, and holy toledo my friends!!!

I cannot begin to say what an improvement to performance this simple replacement has made! I guess a lot of gunk builds up on the cable after 200,000kms - my car instantly responded like a car half the weight, as throttle response is now instant and much more sensitive - unbelieveable! Replacing the exhaust and filter gave a reasonable improvement, but replacing the cable has given the Sierra a far greater kick in the pants at a fraction of the cost.

I can't recommend replacing the original cable enough, it'll be the best $30 you ever spend.
