I can only speak for myself.... I didn't have a big problem with it. I just was slipping a bit when trying to loosen the back right side bolt. Therefore rather than risk stripping it I used a breaker bar-- might have been able to use the rachet, but my extension was a short one. Still was only a five minute job. Perhaps sseimn is having the same trouble? Also, in my case I got a series 2. I seem to have more wires and stuff around than in your pic.

I think someone with the series 2 should show a picture.

I used a small 1.5" extension and lifted up the wire harness a little to get to one or 2 of the bolts. Can't quite remember off hand, but I repositioned the harness while I did it, nothing major.

As for doing this with the TPS...hold off on that idea. I've been doing tests and opening the WOT too high could results in excessive idle voltage that can't be lowered much.

No kidding. I can get the front bolt and the left one in the back but cannot reach the right back bolt. I've tried everything and just ended up tightening it all back up and saving this for next weekend. How do you move the wireing harness to get to that right rear bolt?

In the first post on this thread P-dad had a link that shows the series 2 pic and instructions.

I just manuvered my extension and breaker bar between the wires rather than unclip the harness. See the link I mentioned. The breaker bar allowed me to firmly grip the bolt, while the extension was on at an angle. This angle would have been fine except my bolt was over torqued and I was sliping.

Thanks for the caution.

I agree. I had to find a happy spot. The specs given in the article were too high for my PCM to handle I guess. I'm not saying you shouldn'y try it. Just be aware.
I did feel a difference.

I just finished doing the BCA adjustment on my bonnie about 10 minutes ago... I only had to loosen 2 nuts and the BCA jumped up from the internal spring pressure. I pushed it all the way down (about 3/16" to 1/4" from the original position). The entire thing took me less than 3 minutes to do. Very simple!

I took it for a test drive and was not disappointed. Now when cruising at 60mph I seem to have gained ~3+ psi. Very nice. I can definitely notice the throttle response!

Now I don't know if I want to go and drill out my TPS mounting holes for fear of my warranty not covering the TPS if it goes bad in the future...
