Curious as to why you need those readings? All you have to do with a aftermarket TB install is of course install the thing, put the TPS in the correct holes on the side of the TB and do an ECU reset, that's it.....

...shouldn't be ohms at all...should be volts. just like the maf you run through a 0-5volt range. at idle you will see from .50-1.0 or so.

i don't get why you need this information, its not like you are drilling the throttle body for the correct location and then fitting the tps
