Sounds good. Heck some of that stuff you can probably do without Josh. The fan resistor is super simple. I think your Dad was the one that pulled it out anyhow lol.
I had a similar problem with my normal zetec about the idle issues. i tried a new tps and it helped a little as you said but i also replaced the idle air control valve and that helped it completely. hopefully that's a little useful haha.
