For the throttle position sensor, I removed the old one, cut a bit off the end of the butterfly shaft and fitted a BOSCH 0 280 122 001 (from a 90's volvo 850) onto an adapter plate I made to match the mounting holes for the new sensor. Not MS has a smooth throttle position signal. You just have to make sure you mount the sensor correct so you retain full range of motion on your throttle.

I don't remember where I purchased the mating connector but it is common.
