  1. Sorry I missed your message/help here - The throttle plate goes 99% horizontal. I can tell its not 100% but its damn close. No, both TPS I tested are not new. One is the original Volvo/Bosh unit and the other is a Bosch unit purchased and installed when I did my manual swap 7ish years ago. The 'new' one has maybe 7 years and 3k miles on it... Ill check the link you shared... Sorry I missed your message/help here - The throttle plate goes 99% horizontal. I can tell its not 100% but its damn close. No, both TPS I tested are not new.

Ill check the link you shared... lol that is the same video i shared... and i commented in your thread too stating this was 'probably my problem' haha im fine with just buying another tps - the bosch ones arent expensive... i just find it hard to believe its that since mine is barely used. Ill order one today and test it... and should carefully rule out the harness having an issue as well...
  2. what coilovers you go with? LOVE how clean it all is man!
  3. love it just not a fan of most stock vw wheels... the ones that came on my 16gti were terrible. i love the stock silver watkins glen wheels that were on your 30th though!
  4. wow. no i didnt. but if thats the case then a lot of other people would have this issue with so many of us having turbo cars but NA intake manifolds/TB etc checked its the same TPS for na/t5 etc. for like 10 years of volvo models
  5. The Short: What voltage should the TPS read at WOT? Because I think I have a problem... 96 850R, manual swapped, NA Throttle Body with 960 Throttle Plate, Manual Throttle Cable. When I did the manual swap (7-8 years ago and probably 7-8k miles) I replaced literally everything with new oem parts... The TPS and throttle cable were replaced... How do I know I have a problem? Aaron (VA5T tuning) can see on my logs that when im WOT my TPS is reading 70% and it should read about 83% when floored. He can obviously re-scale and compensate for this but it's better to get this corrected. I decided after nearly a 2 year hiatus of not touching the car that I am going to look into this... I decided to do this test... both my original TPS and 'new Bosch' TPS measure 3.8V when both the pedal is fully depressed and when the throttle spool is at its stopper at WOT. This guy in the video gets 4.5V all the way open... Do I have two bad TPS devices? When slowly opening the throttle the voltage doesn't jump around, they smoothly increase like I believe it should. What gives? Any advice? Thanks! Greg

    Impulse Buy T5M

    looks amazing - now send it to Aaron
  7. 96 850 r manual swapped NA Throttle body - no wedge on mine i have the manual throttle cable too aaron was telling me a while back that my throttle position at wot wasnt all the way open and it was the TPS... but i have a new bosch tps... so gonna test it and see
  8. mobile detailer? i took off my TPS the other day and found my old one... gotta test them and see if that is why my throttle is fucked (Aaron told me years ago that when i was WOT on logs that it was only reading 70-80% and why i thought it felt so slow also hate the play in the gas pedal and TB arm and I think that is the slight 'stick' I feel when I disengage and re-engage the accelerator

    dont cut or burn - just do meth. you now know EXACTLY where to get it. This is awesome, but I am more interested in what Aaron is doing to the saf! Do share on that soon!
  11. I believe for your power goals Aaron will suggest Deatshwerks Dw200 here is an old thread on some details:
  12. I would run a 901 in my 850R if they werent all gray... and i am not gonna paint one black like someone else on here did haha i had a 901 in my t5m and it was really nice for sure
  13. yes he is ^ i work with him every two years id say... its all because i work on my car once every two years
