Throttle Position Reading using Durametric

Recommended Posts

I have been working on 97 Boxster, hoping winter will go faster in New York.I just installed the TechnoTorque intake and installing the latest AOS with new J tube.After finishing these two projects I decided to connect my LapTop loaded with 6.0 durametric to monitor readings from the motor.I selected Throttle Position percentage and I read 80% with my foot to the floor.I then went directly to the throttle body and actuated the butterfly linkage and received same reading.Did anyone out there get the same reading as my non-E gas boxster.I did this test with engine not running .AlsoI performed same test using Innova 3130 diagnostic and received same results. Any body with a non-E gas out there willing to give this a try?

Some folks cut off the little feet on the bottom of the accelerator to help this - you'll notice that the butterfly can open a little more than with your foot on the floor. I cut off the feet/tabs, and now the throttle body is open all the way.

I am going to check tonight the position of the butterfly at the throttle body with air intake pipe off so I can see down the bore.I obtained 80% in diagnostics with me turning the throttle until it stops at the cable.
