I'll try to get you a pic but in the meantime, I mounted the pedal upside down under the floorboard, connected it to a traditional airboat pedal with linkage w/ heim joints at each end. Allows for better long throw so as not to be overly reactive between idle and wide open.

Which 5.3 are you doing? Does it have direct injection?

Mine is flipped over. Used factory bolts holes to mount in it a box then the box is mounted to the under the foot deck. This way you can move it around and even mount it extended past the foot deck like mine. Plenty of walking room.
