slack in throttle

Ok so i got a body lift last week. I dont know if they had to extend the throttle cable or something, but now there is some slack in the pedal. I have to press a little harder to get the beast moving. I know that i havnt lost any hp from exhaust (super 44) but i feel like i have a lot less power from this mushy gas pedal. I searched the how to's and couldnt find any mods for this. How can i tighten up some of that slack?

Lift up on the pedal, reach up behind it and pull the throttle cable, put as many zipties on the slack that comes out as you can. Release pedal and it should be ok.
