    On the throttle body opposite of the throttle actuator. Black in color two screws holding it on, wire connector hooked to it.

    If you took off the throttle body, you held it.

    so in other words, it is part of the throttle body?

    No as i said it is screwed onto the throttle body, not part of the TB. It can be replaced as a separate part.
    See first answer!

    thanks, but if you look at a pic of the 2000 LS2 3.0 TB you will see that it may be all one unit. I have the 3 prong repacement part from the auto store but could not find anything that would look like that.

    You need a scanner with live data screen to monitor tps,maf,egr values.
    Code(s) do not mean a certain part is bad but a circuit or sensor is showing
    undesirable readings.
