What I actually did to get it closer to 1 was I drilled the metal pieces where the torx head screws go and i got mine to .90

Default Great Info!!!

I checked my TPS and the voltage was jumping all over the place so I decided to just replace it. For $37 replaced it and noticed that my truck was more responsive and because the trans receives inputs from it, it was more responsive. Thanks for the info this was a very helpful post, probably saved me a lot of cash.

Wow...this is still alive...haha...forgot about it.

But, I need to do this again, make sure it hasn't changed over the past year...lol

Also, guys, take your TB spacers off. A guy on the 5.9L Jeep forums actually proved that it does nothing. The way the intake is designed, you're actually making the factory design worse. If you had the m1 intake or one with normal runners, it could help with performance, but, on the stock keggar, you're basically just making it take longer to respond by moving the throttle plate further from the intake ports, which the stock intake already has WAY too much volume.

Basically...they're just an overpriced paperweight. I have one I got out of the junkyard, and I just took it off...I can't even bring myself to sell it since its so pointless...lol
