    I can hold r's all the way to redline fine, but with throttle fully open, after 5,000 it breaks up/cuts out really badly. Not catalytic converter, just hollowed that out yesterday. Getting a code 7 on ecu (throttle positioning sensor). Is that it? Or what else could it be??? Anyone know?? thanx...

    I broke my TP sensor of my b16A fisrt GEN and dealer wanted 700us dollars for the whole thing why because here in the USA they love to seal everything thing up anyway i luckly had the old one off my 90 civic si engine used a dremal to slice itand get it out and put that on it fits on perfect i doubt u will get one by itself but the whole throttle body at a junkyard will go for 150.00 USD
