Its just a stopper, limiting pedal travel. You can just unscrew it with your hand, if you'd like. Its made of plastic, and it screws onto a bolt that comes up.

The pedals on the DBW cars are merely actuators. You could, if so inclined, reroute the signal the pedal movement sends to the ecu to a button on the steering wheel...if you were so inclined.
Since the pedal is not mechanincally moving anything, the stopper doesn't do much. That's just the end of the range of motion that the designers intended.
So no, there's not 10hp and 40mph under there.
Check the throttle mod in the VR6 fourms. Some have adjusted the pedal to have a quicker feel. I did it w/ChrisG on his chipped NB and it sucked.

you have a 2.0?? thats the secret button... sometime when you are on the freeway... push on the gas till it seems like it has gone all the way down.. then MASH on it.. it will give a little more and then *VROOM* your tranny will downshift, i believe, and you will get more UMPH.
