    TPS mod + OHV question...

    Will the TPS (throttle position sensor) mod I've read about work on the 4.0 OHV and how effective is it? past experiences anyone? And also, what is the advantage of an OHV over a SOHC? is there any whatsoever? I have the OHV and the power difference of the SOHC is killing me :( :( :(
