The Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) will need to be transferred to the new throttle body, the screws holding the TPS to the throttle body are attached with a lock-tite type adhesive and the only way to get them off will be with an impact driver. The other options are to buy a new TPS or to grind the head off of the screws to free the TPS, I just opted to buy a new TPS to make the install quicker.

The throttle body comes with the hardware required to install the new throttle position sensor (TPS) so if you couldn’t disconnect the TPS without destroying the screws it isn’t a big deal. After installing the new throttle position sensor I attached the new throttle body to the plenum.


did anyone have a problem with this?!

They should go all the way in like they came out of the stock one. I had no problems installing my C&L plenum. Took me about 10-15 minutes to do. And I dont work on cars a lot, now I know a lot more from doing stuff to my car. lol

if it is sticking at idle,the plate is sticking in the bore. you can loosen an retighten the tb mounting bolts evenly in steps in a x pattern. If that don't work you can adjust the stop screw on side of tb, will only take a small adjustment to fix and if you do just remember where it was when you start just in case you want to put back

You're havin a tough time installing a plenum/tb? GL with the sticky gas. Have you taken the intake off and looked at the tb plate to see if its rubbing across the surface of the tb?
