    Check to make sure your coming in straight and not cocking or pinching the cable...I had to shim my bracket almost 3/8" out to get a good sweep and get full travel. Its not a direct swap and my require some fiddling...

    something like this....

    I have the Right Pig tail...Getting ready to do the connections...HOWEVER, the pigtail connector I have does not have colored wires...it has all three gray wires . I will need someone to help me cross-reference by position.

    Let's say you are looking at the front where it connects. You see the connector has part where the plastic comes to a triangular point...There is a wire DIRECTLY in line with that. We will call that 12 O'Clock. So which color would that be?

    Still looking at the copper prongs with the wires going back There will be a 4 and 8 o'clock position, so need to know those colors. I can wait a couple days 2 make the physical connections, for now I will solder some connectors on the six wires and wait till I know what to plug into what.

    Thanks

    Well I think you can scrap the last question (above). The part that the pigtail connects to that goes to the TB (actual TPS wire) has the colors on it. When you mate the 2 parts, you can then match up the colors by how the mated parts line up. That piece DOES have the orange, green and black wires. I assume you just follow the color line.

    If you read this and this is WRONG, PPPPPllllleeeeaassse tell me :lol:

    You need the EGR spacer to bolt the cable bracket too, the cable the bracket, the pigtail, the TPS, which plugs INTO the pigtail. Then you will cut the wires on the 94/95 TPS harness, and solder the three on the pigtail according to the instructions in the first few posts.
