Yep it the tps wires if you mess with the tps you sled will run bad it needs to be set at factory specs for the sled to run right! I had a 98 zl 440lc and that made the sled run like **** because it got messed with by the previous owner. Took me forever to figure it out!

The carburator magnetic switches work with the throttle block safety switch. If the slides are wide open and the throttle is closed (which would happen if a slide gets stuck by ice or debris) the ignition dies and the sled stops. The carb switches are touchy and a lot of people disable the safety feature they offer by disconnecting the carb switches and jumping the wire harness.

I like the safety the system provides; it's not as exciting having the engine just die if you stick a slide, though. That unintended full throttle acceleration can be SUCH a rush ;)
