BMW THROTTLE CABLE BUSHINGS - BILLET ALUMINUM
With age, the factory throttle cable bushing gets soft and spongy, cracking and forcing the throttle cable to sag. Throttle response gets worse since the cable must first straighten up before it starts to move the throttle plate. The EMC (engine management computer ) sets the engine parameters accordingly. Replacing the worn bushings with the Billet Aluminum throttle cable bushings eliminate cable sag and restores the EMC parameters to give a crisp throttle response. The throttle cable bushings kit includes 2 Billet Aluminum Throttle Cable Bushings, 2 Snap Rings. Instructions can be found here.
Important: Does Not Fit E30/E28 M20 Cars or the 750 or 850.

Quick Tip: Its easier to replace the bushings if you remove the throttle body from the intake manifold
Step 1: Unhook the throttle cable from the throttle body
Step 2: Unscrew the throttle cable from the factory bushing and carefully cut the old bushing off the cable
Step 3: Put the throttle cable through the slot on the aluminum bushing.
Step 4: Put the aluminum bushing through the throttle cable bushing bracket and secure it with the snap-ring provided
Step 5: Reinstall the throttle cable back on the throttle body and install it back on the intake manifold.
Step 6: Adjust the tension on the throttle cable till it's tight but still allows the throttle body to close without interference.
