The throttle cable can't be adjusted but the kickdown can be adjusted. Shorten the cable length to get it to kick down a gear sooner. It will kick down under less power.Lengthen the cable length to get it to kick down later. It will kick down with more power.

The transmission shifting is late because the kick-down cable needs to be adjusted. The kick-down cable is usually found on the throttle lever with the throttle cable.

If you mean a Kick down cable you will ruin your transmission as the Kick down cable was only used by most manufacturers in the 1950s and 60s. Later cars had a system where the cable everyone called the Kick down was actually a throttle position cable and controlled the transmission internals to prevent slipping and controls how harsh the shifts are.

Shorten the kickdown cable to make the transmission kick down into a lower gear sooner. Lengthen the cable to make the transmission shift down later or at a lower power setting.
