Easy way to set your TPS (throttle position sensor)

With the car already warmed up and
running, locate the little black plastic box beside the battery and fusebox.
Connect "TEN" to "GND".
Second, loosen the two TPS mounting bolts.
Third, nudge the TPS to the point just before the cooling fans come on.
You'll know what I mean when you try it.
Finally, tighten the bolts, and you're done!
The reason this technique works is because the ECU is setup such that if you
try to drive the car with TEN connected to ground (a.k.a. GND), as soon as
the ECU detects that you are applying the accelerator (i.e., not at idle) it
turns on the cooling fans.
