    how do you get the tps to hook up on this? do you use your 2.3 tps? or is there a way to use the 5.0 tps? the one that came on my new throttle body doesnt look like it can be moved to adjust is like the 2.3 one..will it just work right if i get it on there, and figure out how to hook it up to my car? somebody please help..thanks

    If you are asking about the electricla connection either cut off your old plug and splice it in or bu an adaptor. As far as the TPS first check the voltage out and see if it even needs adjusting.

    i ordered an adaptor from tinyavenger, but a new problem is that the 5.0 tps runs into the upper intake where the egr hooks up.

    did anyone else have trouble with the 5.0 tps sensor meeting up with the back side of the upper intake where you would bolt up the egr?

    That is why most people buy the adaptor plates as well. it moves the TB away from the intake. This gives you the clearance you need.

    I had to cut my EGR flange off because of that...

    Just wait until you try to hook your throttle cable up...

    Use your stock throttle body, it bolts right on.

    probably the same thing everyone else is that puts it on there...better throttle response...its not like its not going to do anything at all.

    I'd spend that money on gears or something more useful like that.
