hey guys, I bought my D16Z6 with a broken TPS with the belief that I could simply screw on a new TPS, as I have seen them on sale on Ebay. However, it appears that my TPS is riveted on, and I can't seem to find a way to get it off. Is there a way I can replace the TPS on this throttle body, or do I need a entirely new one (a rather expensive proposition...).

I was thinking maybe drill out the rivits, and then tape screw holes and try a $15 screw on one...

oh and take the screws to the nearest hardware/parts house and match the screws to one that have heads and you are good to go, that part needs to be tightened down securely, taping anything isnt going to cut it.
