Ok, so occasionally my check engine light would come on and show code 7. (throttle angle). So I figured it was the tps, and ordered a new bloxracing tps off of ebay. After installing the new tps the code is now constant instead of occasional. Any ideas why this is happening?

Make sure your contacts are good on the plug.

Make sure you installed it correctly.

Make sure you calibrated it correctly.

It must be calibrated as Casey pointed out.

Backprobe the TPS (middle wire) with the ignition oN. The ECU wants to see between .4V and .5V for the CEL to shut off. Loosen the two screws on either side of the TPS plugs and adjust it until the closed voltage is between those two values. Next check that WOT have about 5V. Tighten it down and reset the CEL.....all done.

So if adjusting the screws changes the voltage output...... wouldn't tightening them back down after you got the right voltage just throw it off again? Also what is the correct way to reset the computer on a 91 integra? If I unpulg the battery on it for awhile will it reset?

NO. You loosen the screws and turn the whole thing, you'll notice that the holes in the sensor that the screws go through are elliptical. You should have about 20 degree of movement. Find the exact position where it fall between the values I posted, clear the code, and that is it.
