Don't use that adjustable TPS. It'* old, and it'll wreak havoc on your TCC clutch with your shift kit.

No, the addition of a shift kit in a performance rebuild is the factor that matters. When you do that, and 'optimize' the TPS, it'* brutally in and out of lockup because it'* too sensitive.

For a normal trans, it'* fine, but WILL wear and tear the TCC more than necessary.

Will do you think I'm alright using this adjustable until a replacement arrives in the mail if I move it back to the proper voltage position? The other one was causing me drivability issues and I REALLY don't want to go back to it.

Check it first. It might be worse, particularly with the age. I'd hate to see you go through the trouble of putting it on the 95 only to find out it'* crap.
