    those things that look like rivets are just shear bolts- just a slot in them with a hacksaw and unscrew them with a flat head screwdriver- when installing the new one find some allen bolts that are the right thread and length and use those- and don't forget to set TPS voltage before tightening everything up-

    yes, you abolutely need a TPS hooked up- your ECU relies on that signal to decide how much fuel to give the motor, since the d16 is a not a mass airflow sensored car-


    if you hook a meter to the leads on the TPS, you should read .5v at closed throttle and 4.5 volts at WOT- once you are as close to the readings as possible, tighten the bolts down to keep the TPS at that position
