Default [EVDL] Jerky Accelerator Cable

The under-hood battery box on my EV is real close to the firewall, necessitating having to make a sharp bend in the accelerator cable between the firewall and battery box to route it over to the pot box. It works, but the cable is real jerky, so it's hard to take off smoothly. The cable itself is metal wire inside plastic sheathing. Due to lack of any additional space under the hood, there's no place to put the pot box that would alleviate the bend. Any suggestions for helping the situation except drilling another hole in the firewall and moving where the cable comes through, or purchasing an electronic pedal?

Thanks.

Bill
