Just halfshafted my F150 70mm tb tonight, I cant wait to instal it along with a ported upper intake elbow. I have read it is difficult to reinstal the tps, any tips?

I have the truck tb, I have a ported and grinded upper intake elbow, and I have halfshafted the truck tb(people are doing this with the stock tbs)

Do I put my tps on the F150?

Thanks

It's pointless to get a 70mm tb if you've got a stock 94-95 intake. A halfshafted 65mm is perfect for everyone who's not touched their intake.

It looks like you've got a little more room to improve on your elbow J.Miller ;)

Had your elbow been cut and welded? If those dimples are still there (regardless of how big) it will never flow as much as a HS'd 70mm will.

You put the tps on by putting it on with the harness pointing down, then twist it up so it's pointing to the front of the car. You'll feel a little tension on it. Then adjust the voltage to ~.96V at idle.

what's in the future? A HS'd 65mm almost requires a few mods to help you any. You really have to see a 94-95 intake compared to a PI, you'll know why I'm preaching it. The flow of a 94-95 intake is not enough to justify a HS'd 70mm. I'll bet my HS'd 65mm flows the same or more than a 70mm.

Nothing in the immediate future but I may try to go in the direction of Hans Solo and a few others with 13s with the 94/5 intake. Next on the adjenda is 5 speed for next summer. I cant think about that yet, I need to pay my tuition.

Should there be a noticible differece from my stock elbow and tb to my ported elbow and halfshafted F150 70mm tb?

Deffinetely, your throttle response will suck.
