A shorter clutch will be a heavier clutch - unless you upgrade to SMG...
Idle is right and RPM is set in the DME. The IAC can get glugged up if you are having idle problems.

Shorter clutch movement can be had with a clutch stop, as mentioned.

Shorter clutch engagement can be had with a heavier, stronger clutch. Depending how far you go, and type of clutch, drivability becomes more challenging under daily use.

On a previous car, I installed a 12lb flywheel, heavy pp, and 6 puck clutch with LSD. It was impossible to take off in the rain without the back end coming loose.

shorter clutch pedal

I found this Mason clutch pedal on ebay.
I'm thinking about trying it.

I will consider the clutch stop though I don't think my car has it.

thanks

That's a lot of money for a part that's going to do the exact same thing. The clutch stop is basically a spacer under the pedal to prevent further travel. It's something you make or install, doesn't come on the car. Read the thread I linked.

clutch stop

I went ahead and gave it a try, the clutch stop, it worked wonderfully.
it made it feel like the clutch pedal has been shorted.
I thought maybe my car would not start but my car started just fine.

thanks.
