Does anyone have a picture of the back of the intake and throttle so I can figure out where the TPS mounts to with the two bolts. mine is just sitting there the bracket is on the plug but I can not see where it mounts on the engine. Thanks Mike

No picture, but maybe this will help... Remove the idle air bypass valve (IAB) from the back of the throttle body. It is the metal cylinder, about 1" in dia, and several inches long with a 2 wire elecrical plug on it. It is attached with 2 bolts, 5/16" head, I think. The TPS attaches right below the IAB. Removing the IAB makes installing the TPS easier. While you have the IAB off, blast the snot out of it with brake cleaner. If the gasket rips, just make a new one out of thin cardboard.

Cereal box to be specific [Image: smile.gif] Also so you know if the TPS is off you will have to adjust it when you put it on.There is an article on the main page of this board on how to do it.
