Throttle pedal angle

Is it me?  I'm on my second 928 now and one thing that bugs me is the angle of the pedal.  It seems very flat ( for want of a better description) so that to get to the kick down the pedal is nearly horizontal ( which my foot doesn't seem to be able to make with any degree of comfort!)  Is there a way to make the pedal more upright and retain the same kick down? I've searched for pedal mods to no avail.

I'm speeding because I have to get there before I forget where I'm going.

There is an adjustable link between the pedal itself and the "relay lever" which  the cable attaches to.
Adjusting this link to be longer should make the pedal sit higher.

That works a treat, thanks.  However, what is the black switch ( see photo) near the floor that the pedal mechanism closes at the end of its travel.  Some part of the kick down?  Before I lengthened the rod the switch was not being closed at full pedal depression.

I think you’ll find that that is the kick down switch.
