    Yes the correct pedal is part of the whole set up. In all the cars I've seen, the pedal with the extra tab were left in the cars. No need to change that out when they removed the cable and lever assembly. Later models do not have the tab. My car had the bracket fixed under the dash where the cable sheath locks into place. From there the ball end of the cable hooks to the pedal tab, pulling above the fulcrum engaging the throttle.

    Here's a pic of the bracket in my car.  No throttle installed when I took delivery.

    And this is a slightly-fuzzy picture posted by someone else a long time ago (sorry, no name available for photo credit) that shows the control cable end piece, c/w plastic snap-in fitting, and the top of throttle pedal arm...

    Thanks for the pictures guys.  That helps a lot.   My first Z had one, the others did not and I didnt remember how it was connected nor what the parts looked like. The reason I would like to get one because it is handy when you want to set the rpms higher whithout having to choke the heck out of it, hold the pedal down or adjust the fast idle screw.   It is extremely convenient and one does not really miss it unless you actually had one in the past, then you do.  Its not necessary but it is great to have one.
