    Interesting project. What praytell do you need TPS on a carb for? :)

    It should be FAIRLY simple, but time consuming, to set up a bracket that would allow a later TPI TPS to work, or I guess you could find one of the CCC TPS', and try to mount it some way that it would get the right travel.

    TPI (and TBI I assume) use an arm that engages the throttle bracket, while the CCC ones have a "remote" plunger that was underneath the accelerator pump arm.

    I will be setting one up shortly for use with the 4l80e. I plan on using TCI's. Summit has them for $199.
