Default b234f yoshifab plenum/ throttle cable

hi I am in the process of welding up the yoshifab plenum and I am noticing that while it fits of course it is quite close to the throttle cable housing on the fire wall and as I am not running sold engine mounts I was wondering if anyone else has noticed/ had this problem. I should note that I am welding the plenum just after the runners mainly because its a lot easier to weld this way, and because I want to keep the vacume niples for IAC and various other things.

thanks

thank you, as you can see here he is welding the plenum at the runners, I am doing something slightly different. I want to know if anyone has had any problems with the engine torquing into the throttle cable at the fire wall as there is not a lot of space.

Under acceleration the engine will torque over to the pass side.

Do you have a pic of your current setup?

Electric throttle is one way. Takes care of idle too.
