It wont make you car any faster, just make you accelerate faster with less pressure on the pedal, if that makes sense.

A resistor will do the same. It'* called a "TPS Enhancer" and makes the PCM think you've pressed the pedal harder than you think. My Jet Stage 2 does this among other things.

Tuning the tps is pausible, I have not done mine but have a link to a good set of instructions.
check here http://www.geocities.com/carnutguy/c...hancement.html

Chime in if you go ahead with the tune, looks easy enough and may add a bit of pep while taking care of un-wanted kr?

If you want to increase throttle response, upgrade your PCM or buy other mods. The TPSE is an electronic gimmick not worth the money in our view.

i dont plan on buying anything, I read a guide that said you use a voltmeter to adjust it or something. I was wondering if it was worth the effort.
