How to Adjust Throttle Cable length

When I step on the gas the metal part of the the throotle that rotates doesn't make contact with the throotle body meaning I need to adjust the actualy cable to get full WOT.

Does anyone know how to do this?
(just to make it clear I am adjusting the cable not the throttle budy idle screw)

Too poorly described to be able to help. Pictures would be nice.

Very simple need to shorten/lenghten the throttle cable so the plates open up more when on WOT. When I press the gas all the way down, the throttle cable does not put the plates all the way (maybe 90%) Cable does not get pulled inwards enought when I press the gas.

Low response rate so far. I am sure somone knows how to adjust the actual cable.

I noticed that my '96 GTS was not achieving full throttle when the pedal was depressed to the floor. There is some adjustment available in the throttle cable bracket but it was insufficient; my throttle bodies were opening to perhaps 85 or 90% of their available range. I did a bit of Googling and discovered that Sean Roe used to include instructions with his clutch-linkage bars addressing this issue and, based on what I read, he advocated modifying (bending) the plate under the gas pedal to allow an increased range. Interestingly he had identified that this condition mostly existed on "early" Gen 2 cars; he did not specify an exact year where it was no longer an issue. I got to wondering why only earlier models would be affected and looked into the part numbers when I realized that Dodge had released a revised bracket at some point. I decided to roll the dice and replace my OE bracket (part number 4848836AA) with the revised part (4848836AB) that is now available. Upon delivery it was apparent the revised part will, in fact, rectify the issue. I bolted it on and sure enough my car now easily achieves full throttle with the new bracket in the middle of it's adjustable range.

Some folks have been on the dyno and reported low power. One simple adjustment added 20-30 HP - make sure your floor mat isn't limiting pedal travel.
