    you can drill out the rivets and replace TPS, but they are not easy to adjust to get them to work correctly - i would just swap out throttle bodies

    you have to take a dremel or a hack saw to the rivit and cut a slit init then you can unscrew it with a flat head screw driver, then when you replace it there is a little plastic arm you will see that needs to line up with the little gear in the throttle body.

    next time you do a swap, take off the TPS before the installation of the motor, and put it back on after the install, they break way to easily

    on my old EF, my rear mount was totalled, so every time i dropped the clutch i would smash the TPS, I prolly changed that thing 10-15 times.
