Default TPS adjustment

Hi All,

I have read the posting regarding the TPS adjustment and want to do this on my 2002 SE.

My question is, are the voltage specs for the TPS the same for all years?

Thanks!

bonnyguy, please put your year and trim level in your signature. It'll help us to help you.

I personally don't like the TPS adjustment mod. It makes the TCC unlock too sensitive. I probably wouldn't normally notice it, but with the shift kit now, I LURCH into and out of TCC lockup. With the TPS over-sensitive, it'* really annoying.

Yes those are the correct voltages.

Bill, your torque curve is way off the charts for most so your application maybe a bit different. The key here is too adjust if for you engine and driving preference.

Yeah, I hear your having trouble with your TPS reports.

On topic though, I did this mod to my L36 that I just removed, I was not a fan. Once you do it, you will have to tweak it every so often, when before I never had to mess with it. I like low maintenance items.
