Yeah, cutting out the old and splicing in the new connector with solder and heat shrink tubing (if you have it) is the way to go. The male end of the newer style tps are different, so once you upgrade you won't ever need the old connector. Still never got an answer on what TPS comes in the new throttle bodies, though. I solved my problem for the moment because I ended pulling a throttle body with old tps from a totaled '01 ZX3 at a junkyard for $60. The transmission is shifting nicely. However, the car is stalling/choking itself out. I'm wondering if its IAC or a plugged cat at this point. The exhaust smelled a bit like eggs during the test drive after the tps/throttle body swap.
