I always worried about which was _the_ correct setting for the TPS...until
realizing that the TPS voltage is run through an ADC (analog to digital
converter). Talking to Mike Flemming, he told me that the eec relies on
the _relative_ values (or counts) of these ADC's....like 555 relative
counts of the TPS is WOT. Relative means that when the circuit is
initialized, if the voltage by the TPS is within "range", a relative 0
count is assigned to the eec. So to make a long story short, I don't think
it matters a whole bunch. Everything is relative to the initial voltage of
the TPS...I just set mine to about .990 and say "good enough."
