Default STIFF gas pedal

i have a 92 with a 302 in it, and my gas pedal is about as stiff as can be! ive had to replace 2 throttle cables in it already due to them breaking, i had to put a new throttle body on the truck when a tin cup pressed into the side wore out and spewed coolant every where and when i put in a new tranny i made sure all the cables where adjusted right via a tranny shop in town, but the pedal is still harder the heck to push down, by unhooking the shift down cable it makes it soft like it should be but then of coarse you cant drive with it off, why is my pedal so stiff? i see alot of you have upgraded to a BBK throttle body, what is the advantage of that over the stock one? and might that solve my problem or is there another solution to fix it? thank you in advance!!!

The TV cable to the Trans may have some cracking and fraying going on causing the cable to bind. If you haven't already done so, replace it. The BBK TB's have wider openings to allow more air in and the mechanisms are most likely better quality than wore out stock. I don't know how the EEC will handle the extra flow in a MAP/ Speed Density setup like yours. I'd think it would lean things out at least.
