So I was reading around some Mazda 3 Forums and found this

Throttle Body Ground (by loudboxer))

Throttle Body Ground (by loudboxer)

This link shows the interference the TB receives at idle before and after grounding it.

Anyone want to give it a shot?

I'm going to grab some wire and parts and try it on my engine probably this weekend if it's not too cold.

I wonder if this may even solve the 2-3 shift problem.

I actually just did this. Maybe it's my imagination but it does seem like the throttle responds a bit quicker than it did. It's a cheap mod that basically can't hurt.

It's slight but it does seem like the throttle responds a little more like it's not drive by wire, if that makes sense.
