TPS Throttle Enhancer Calibrator

http://www.jegs.com/cgi-bin/ncommerc...36&prmenbr=361



What exactly does this do? I seen a guy with it and he said basically when your at 75% throttle it acts like it's at 100% giving you a more effecient and longer power curve.

Bs or not?

Check the TPS thread. It does NOTHING for a Ford EEC. After ~75% throttle, the EEC goes into "WOT mode". At that point, the EEC bases ALL of the fuel *independent* of "how much" the TPS voltage is.

It could kick the computer into WOT mode at an earlier throttle opening, but that won't give you any more power. It might make you think your car is more powerful at part throttle. It's definately not worth the money. You could build the same thing with a couple of resistors...

Cheaper way of doing the same thing.....advance the TPS so it reads WOT sooner.

Save the $100 and get some pullies or something that is proven
