Is your throtle screw too tight? Check the voltage runnig to the tps. I was told by Focus Central that the voltage should be around .91-.95

did you unplug the battery cable when you swapped throttle bodys so the ecu could reset?

depending on the TB it may have diff mounting holes for diff years of foci. make sure it is in the correct spot and make sure your idle screw is adjusted correctly. You may also want to check for vac leaks around the tb. did you use rtv sealant?

Make sure the TPS is still good too, if it is faulty or at least mounted wrong the tranny will shift hard and have idling problems.

hope Ed helped you out Joel, it could be alot of things like mentioned above, more than likely the TPS is in the wrong place or the screw needs adjusting, if you had some radical cams this wouldnt be such a bad thing heh
