Re: Stripped throttle position sensor hole, what to do?

No need for drilling - your threads are already slightly enlarged/stripped, so just run the larger tap carefully until it bottoms out. This should clean out the threads and make sure the larger bolt fits. Your mileage may vary of course, but that's all you should need to do.
