If you can't find one you can make one for pretty cheap.

I have made two so far. One was using a TPS201 and the other a TPS4185. If you want to use 201 and want to use the stock throttle position wiring + connector I would take your stock non-variable throttle position sensor and gut it. Then you will wire up the 201 to the stock sensors connector. The 201 will also require modifying the sleeve of the sensor to fit the Miata throttle position rod. I would recommend using the 4185 as its a bit simpler. It already has the correct connector and sleeve to match the throttle position rod, however, the pinout is wrong. It will require you to cut the sensor open and repin it internally to avoid modifying the stock Miata harness. You can find everything I just told you by searching this form. You will even find photos and others input. Good luck.
