[V8] WOT V8 issue

3 things -
a: easy - cruise control linkage
b: bummer - kinked throttle cable
c: real f-ing bummer - broken spiral throttle return spring.
Remove intake cover, remove air filter, remove air box (2 10mm nuts),
get crossover plug wire loom unclipped and out of the way. 3 torx bolts
remove the aluminum plate which covers the throttle linkage. 10 minutes
work and you'll see which of the 3 it is.
