well what was a few minute job turned into a couple hour job. i had a spare tps so i figured id drill out the metal sleeves a lil, tried it, no big difference, so i figured phuck it ill knock em out, got one out, tried gettin the other one out and the front came off,,,phuck i broke it, so i dick around with it and got it workin again, so i siliconed the hell out of it, figured my luck ill be cruisin and abusin it and the front would fall off, so i cut a lil piece of aluminum (left over from the light bracket) to span from the screws and hold it in place, now i got .77/.78 and 3.98-4.00 at WOT, test drove it and seems more responsive, so im happy

not sure what you're adjusting? but I can't rotate my tps one way or the other to change voltage. Are you adjusting the butterfly?

Hey I tried doing this a few days ago and when I tried doing it I accidentally took the TPS off and when I did that i tried putting it back on after i got it back on i took it for a spin around the block and noticed that my throttle pedal was almost all the way to the floor I couldnt get my truck to go faster than like 35 MPH and i was putting all of my weight into it lol.. Then i figured that i needed a new TPS so i ordered one and got it today and installed it but the same thing happened im still not getting any good throttle response. Any help would be awesome...because i really wanna go play in the mud lol..
