I had no issue installing my FC 65mm TB on my 2003 ZX3.
Well, except that my idle would hang high when I would release the throttle.
I called Dave and he told me to flip the TPS 180 degrees and that fixed my only issue.

**Click on my www button and you can see my FC 65mm TB with the TPS mount opposite of stock.

You use the 02 ATX TPS holes to mount your 2003 TPS. I think that's actually the only holes big enough for the TPS screws.

crobro24 also the bracket that comes with the TB for the cables its kinda offset on mine like i got no play from it just wondering if anyone else has that problem..and it looks like ill be waiting a bit to re-install it. Pretty sure it was a leak causing the hanging RPM's..if anyones had problems with it would u let me know this way i can look out for that stuff!

BlkZX3 Thats what mine did when I forgot to re-connect the MAF, belive it or not the car still runs, I assume you've checked that though.

2000kona take a 3mm allen wrench and turn the idle screw till u hear the rpm's come up the let it set for a munite, then back it off and keep checking ur tach till it is at about 800 rpm when idling.

EuroZX3 adjust the idle screw. should barely make contact with the plate

yellowbean00 u sure u had the tps in the right spot because there are different rotations on the tps on 5 spd or automatic if that does not work check your idle screw it could be out of wack.
