Default Improved throttle resopnse

I was chasing a "Chuggle gremlin" in my engine when I came across this thread in my searches.

http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...&highlight=tps

I promptly followed the instructions I found in this thread and not only did it clear up the problem I was having, I noticed a definite improvement in my throttle response.

Just thought I'd mention it incase there were anyother people like me who hadn't come across it yet.

Good info Jack.. Nice job linking the original in to assist others.

This was a hot item when I joined the club. It'* a TPS adjustment to make the car perform more to spec actually.

I just got through reading that entire thread; the longest one I've ever read on BC. Anyway, those guys never did say exactly how to adjust the TPS voltage. I recall the part about using an ohmmeter to check the voltage, but never a mention of how to actually adjust it.

I personally don't like the mod. I've set both of my cars back to factory voltages, as it makes the TCC unlock too sensitive when you lightly tip into the throttle while in OD/TCC lockup. Thats alot of wear and tear on the TCC solonoid and clutch.

[snip] or you may also use a voltmeter on the sensor wires by setting it to read up to 5 volts and tapping the ground into the black wire and the power to the center wire on the TPS connector.
When he says "tapping the {ground} into the black wire," does he mean the black multimeter lead?

When he says "tapping the {power} to the center wire," does he mean the red multimeter lead?

It doesn't matter which lead goes where. You'll just get a negative number when you do it backwards. No big deal, the number is still the same.
