Re: TPS??

Have you tried cleaning it? It's right behind your throttle body/on the throttle body after your intake.

Re: TPS??

Replace It, They Are Cheap, You Will Probably Have To Adjust It To A Certain Voltage, It Is As Simple As Counting Five Fingers On Your Hand. The Adjustment Might Be 1 Volt, That Is What The Adjustment Is On My Stang, But Mine Is Much Different Than Yours.

Re: TPS??

To The Best Of My Knowledge, It Senses The Position Of The Throttle, Then Sends That Info To The Computer, & Then The Computer Adjusts The Ignition Timming & Fuel Injectors As Needed. It Is A Very Important Senser. At Least That Is What It Does For My Mustang. But My Mustang Is 12 Years Older Than Yours. Your Engine Management System Is Far More Advanced Than Mine.

Re: TPS??

Sohc = 2 Cams, & 16 Valves - Dohc = 4 Cams, & 32 Valves
Gt Modular Engines Are Sohc
Cobra Modular Engines Are Dohc.
