Built into the throttle body, you'll need to buy whole TB.

PSH, thats the EASY way to do it

You can swap the TPS by taking a hack saw, and cutting into the head of the screws holding it in (yes, they really are screws). Just cut a notch into it big enough for a flat head screwdriver, then use that to spint them out.

Have a multimeter on hand for the reinstall though, because it will need to be re-calibrated.

Also let me know if you need a new TPS, I think I have two of them sitting in the garage somewhere

LOL, you don't cut anything on the engine. If you take a good luck at your TPS, you'll see what looks like a rivit on each end of it. Those are just little dome-headed screws. You cut into that dome so that it looks like a flat head screw, then use a screw driver to take it out. Takes about 5 minutes and doesn't do any damage to the actual motor

The TPS is supposed to be "permanently" part of the TB according to Honda, so it stays in calibration. They use security screws with heads that break off so they can't be removed. You're just cutting new slots in those screws so you can remove them and throw them away, then use regular screws to attach the new TPS.

Hmm, not bad! I'll get right on it. Now, since they are not supposed to be separated, will i be able to buy just a TPS or will i have to buy the whole setup with the throttle?

finding only a TPS might be tough, but like I said, I should have two if you're interested in buying one
