Hey i just swapped from one barrel to two barrel on my EA81 sedan but now i need a new throttle cable cause the old one isnt long enough to reach. How do i get it out though? The book i have (haynes) is very vauge about it. It says to disconnect it on the engine and in the passenger compartment and then push it through the firewall. I cant though. Theres some black cube that is stopping me from pushing it through. Anyone who can help please do. I need my car back by next monday.

The easiest way is to take the driver's seat out, lay on your back and squeeze the tabs of the black cube together. Then you push those tabs out into the engine box. The cable on the pedal is the easy part.

Make sure you have a good drop light down there too. A fluorescent one works great because they generate very little heat.
