Mmmm... Yeah, You see.. we're putting the coversheets on ALL the TPS reports now before they go out. Did you get the memo about this?

Yeah. If you could just go ahead and make sure you do that from now on,
that will be great. And Uh, I'll go ahead and make sure you get another
copy of that memo Mmmm, Ok?

I don't know about that. My SVT drives fine in the rain. Kinda hard to make the wheels connect sometimes though.

If your getting poor driving in the rain and killing TPS why doing it my guess would be your getting water in through the intake

Water will kill the TPS in the SVT because it isnt sealed into the electronics , we found this out when we tried to do water meth before the TPS , Killed them every time

i can park my car running fine durring the dry, and it rain over night, and i pull out into my street, and make it 100 yards, and its already screwed up. to solve this, eliminate the cai? maybe go with a short ram or stock intake with K&N filter? from what ive read on, a n/a motor, boltons dont do much for our cars, unless you have a poweradder..
