Shouldn't be too hard. Its right on the throttle body and it should only be two small bolts.

My 1994 doesn't have Torx screws; they're Philips #2. Yours are probably one or the other (my guess: Philips #2).

Also, on my TB the TPS was impossible to do with a normal screwdriver; I had to take the #2 bit and use a 1/4" wrench to turn it.

Good luck!
