So I picked up this billet throttle body for a good deal. I took my time on the install to make sure every thing was in order including tune and setting the tps to factory specs. No matter what i do my car goes into fail safe mode. I contacted bama tunes and they told me to check the installation so i did but still no luck. I switched back to the stock throttle body and everything worked. While messing around with this stuff i found that the screw that sets the tps is a little different. I have some pics of them taken out to show you what i mean. The stock screw has a spring loaded pin at the bottom while the new one has non. I think this is the problem because it seems that when u turn the key to power on the computer does a system check and it closes the throttle body witch is allowed by the stock tps screw. It also explains why i would be get p2104 and p2112 codes which means the throttle actuator control system is stuck closed and forces idle. I'm not sure if this is the problem but its the best think I could think of. I'm considering drilling out a hole into the new throttle body to make the stock screw fit. ANY HELP OR SUGGESTIONS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! Thanks!
