Default TPS - What controls

Hello folks
I am creating a car from the track and, because of my constant desire to experiment, I'm using 2 twin choke Dell'Orto carburetors. The machine has already been set in motion and despite excessive pressure to the carburetors (0.4 bar - 0,2 required , i'll set it tomorrow) continues to run until then engulfs you.

That said, I would like to ask you a question:
I've removed the TPS sensor might be useful to re - install it on the new throttle control, or considering a full use of the car on the track, just connect it to the unit holding it stuck on full open position?

Thanks for your collaboration!

since you're no longer fuel injected, you can just throw the TPS out

You should experiment with a distrubitor and cap/rotor too. Maybe swap in the 7.8:1 CR GTX block. Crush bent exhaust.


Lets see how slow and inefficient we can make this thing!

It's only an experiment
If it will not work well i'll resell it and re-install the stock intake

so is ignition still controlled by the ECU or are you running some sort of a distributor?
