you need to do some more research there is alot involved with the intake manifold swap and lots of people have done it.

the second tps is for cars equipped with traction control, which only works with the stock throttle body.
when you go to an aftermnarket throttle body or one with just one tps, you will loose traction control.
most people don't want trac control and you wont get a check engine light for it, just the trac light but then pull the fuses and bulbs etc.. basically delete the trac control.

if you want to keep the traction control then you need to keep the stock throttle body, but most people do not do that or bother to keep trac control.
