I am following this discussion closely and plan on making some similar adjustments. Is this the control pressure (Bowden?) cable you are referring too?

Where is this adjustment Steve? Is it at the throttle linkage? TO the right of the engine block, and to the left of the washer reservoir on an M104 motor? I glanced over it and couldn't find a 13mm nut? I hate to keep asking... But I would LOVE for it to downshift a little faster too. Sometimes I am going only 18 mph, floor it and it won't kick into first! Talk about frustrating!! It will then rev up to about 32 mph and shift, so I figure if I can floor it at 22mph or so and have it kick into first, that should still be fine. Thanks again for EVERYTHING.

I think you are looking at the throttle cable. That would not be what you want to adjust. In this picture you CAN see a cable adjustment though. The black nut at the end of the cable housing; where it attaches to the metal bracket (midway up the washer reservoir).

If I am right about this being the throttle cable, look around, the trans cable is a similar arrangement. Remember, one cable pulls and one is PULLED.
