anyone tell me what readings I should be getting on my mutlimeter for throttle position sensor on a closed throttle, I know I've read it in this forum before, but can't find it again, this time I'll write the answer in my manual.

I need to know because I have a modded (fitted an EF linakge to it) AU TB on my EF and had to oval out the sensor holes to get the right readings as the bolt holes in the TB are bigger, I had the website open when I did it to get the right readings.

cheers

I also have an AU TB on my XR8 ,and found you have to slot the holes a s**t to achive the desired .8- .9V, If I had to do it again I would chase up an AU sensor & make up a wiring adaptor.
it save heaps of time & looks neater.

Ultimatly you want as close to 0.98v without going over, I normally set it at 0.9-0.95v.
