Can I get a stronger throttle return spring for EA 3.9 mpi?

It's too weak for me and I find it tiring holding my foot up on country trips. Ford say they don't have one.

A Friend with a VN crappodore put 2 standard springs on, instead of the single one on the throttle body.

He was of the same opinion, and said it was hard to take off (It was manual), as he was using far too many revs, and was used to a Tripple carby set up on his VB. Very Heavy pedal feel).

Hope this helps a little ???

Those returen springs are built into the cable aren't they????? You could probably hook an external on pretty easy easy though.
