WOT Switch

I have found that if you click a working WOT switch by hand while the
car is idling, the idle will change. (At least on my 4kq). Also a good
idea to turn off the engine and have someone mash the "gas" pedal to the
floor and check that the throttle is opening all the way and clicking
the switch. You also don't want too much tension on the cable or it will
fail early.
