The throttle position sensor also has two separate tracks in its potentiometer for redundancy:



This is what the thin wires, temperature bulb and calibration circuit look like in the MAF sensor:



And finally, this is what's inside the drive by wire throttle body:

Awesome work!

I'm moving this thread to the Media Share sub-forum because of relevancy, if you start any new threads like this please post them there as well.
