First of all, I would only use the OEM part, # E9TZ-9A758-U. I've tried cables from just about everyone else and they're all short, so that your foot hits the firewall well before you run out of throttle travel.
If you're doing it in a truck it's actually very easy, especially if you have 2-3 feet of 1/4" drive extensions. First, remove the air cleaner. Next, pop the linkage off at the accelerator pedal and injector pump. don't forget to remove it from the bracket near the pump. Then, using a 1/4" drive 8mm socket remove the 2 screws holding the cable bracket to the firewall. Fish the cable out from whatever it's routed through, and install the new cable's ball socket on the pump lever stud. Click the cable into the bracket near the pump, rounded side downward, then run the other end the same way as the old cable, fish it through the opening in the firewall, and install the bushing & cable into the accelerator pedal. Now install the bracket on the firewall using the 2 screws from the old cable, and you're all set. Check for full travel and binding, and replace the air cleaner if everything checks out.
