Default TPS adapter plate

Putting a 4.6 Mustang TB on my new intake manifold I had built, and am having a heck of a time finding the adapter plate to put the Miata TPS on the Mustang TB. I've checked FFS, and Tom there seems to be the only one making them that I can find. This doesn't appear to be a product that FFS stocks. Is it a special order item? Anybody have one?

Thanks guys.

Can't use the Mustang TPS? I've got a 5.0 65mm stock TB and just soldered up the connector from a cannibalized Miata tps so it would be PnP.

That seems like the most logical solution... Using a wiring diagram from both.

I was under the impression that they used different values to determine closed and WOT? If that's not the case, then it is simple and my question is moot.

Any aftermarket ecu worth it's salt will allow you to calibrate the TPS. You do have an aftermarket ecu right?

Do you to pay extra to unlock the calibrate features on the hydra?

In that case, splice the ford TPS into your existing loom.

Or you could order a megasquirt and have a better ecu and solve this problem at the same time.
