Fix for FI light when removing secondary actuator and tps?

I'm in the process of removing the secondary rod from my TBs. Some one has to of found a way to trick the ecu that the actuator and tps are still there. So what is it? I would appreciate any and all help.

Just curious to what the real benefit of removing the rod? If the response is weight savings, how much could that rod possibly weigh? 2 ounces perhaps? Just wondering since a few people here has been trying to eliminate the rod, so no disrespect with the question.

its not for the weight, its for the air flow obstruction that the rod creates. the 2' tps would need something similar to "servo eliminator" to trick it

The rod its self doesn't weigh much of anything but the actuator has a bit to it. However my main reason for removing the rod is to make the intake track as free flowing as possible. I figure while I have everything completely apart for winter build I would like to make all the "little bits" as efficient as I can get it.

Now is the actuator in the middle? I''ll assume so, so could you just cut the rods at the points I outlined so you get the free effect and still have the uncut rod still hooked up so that it would not throw off the FI light?

Or does it work differently?

You cant because the rod is what connects the actuator to the tps on the side of the TBs.
