I'm guessing that your rank would have to be Flight Commander then?

Been having issues with the Car, rough idle, bogging out, missing, rough acceleration/slowing down!
Checked/replaced HT leads, Plugs. Filters......etc etc.
Cleaned electrical connections & checked BOV, IACV, BAC, Ash Tray, Washer Bottle..........etc etc.
Multimeter on TPS seemed some unusual readings/gaps in resistance (was futile), so I adjusted it (manual said not to) & found it moved the "Dead" spot further up the Rev range ............Yippee I think I found the problem, not a great deal of info on the Forums about it, so I ordered a new one ($$$$$$) from AUS.
2 weeks to arrive so just fitted (have to remove Intercooler/Alternator & various wiring connectors.......................YIPPEEEEE
All sorted & Idling & accelerating smoothly now.
This is the offending electronic TPS gizmo bastard!

Like all the best troubleshooters, if it says 'Do not Adjust' or 'Not Adjustable' , mess with it anyway just to be sure LOL. Well done that man.
