Default tps sensor wiring

i have a question. i did a z6 swap in my ef and used a conversion harness to convert to obd 1. the only problem i have is with the tps sensor. the instructions said to swap the two outer wires on the sensor plug to make it work right. i was just wondering what colors and in what order are the three stock tps wires because i think i might have them switched around in the wrong order, and if they are in the wrong order would i need a new tps sensor because it might be damaged from the reversed wiring. thanks a lot everyone

right now i run the car without it plugged in, it runs fine without it except for the CEL, but with it plugged the idle goes up and down

You need to switch the green/white and yellow/white wires. They should be on the outside of the plug.

They're still the same colors... Just backwards.

Damn you and your camera...

And no, it won't do any damage to the sensor, but your engine will think you're at WOT when you're idling.
