You could put a dfuser Idle Control in it. It is an "open style" knob (with out clicks) and you can adjust it to what you want. I will find out tomorrow how many RPMs it will go up to.

I have seen 2 throttles on some intenational garbage trucks with dual drive cab's. I am pritty sure their TPS's are designed basicly the same way as in our pickups. How they worked is they spliced into all of the wires for the TPS except the power wires and run them to the new one. for the power wires they run the wire from the old and new TPS to a 2 way switch, where when you have the switch in one direction the origanl sensor is getting power. then you flit it and only the new switch gets power.
if that dosent make sence I'll try and drawl a diagram or something.

A complete 7.3 will weigh in around 1200lbs depending on the year, but they are all within about 150lbs of 1200.

I was going to run the TPS wires into the switch and switch it to run the factory TPS or the one for a hand throttle.

The dfuser idle controller will normally go up to 1800 RPMs however if you want, Bill will make it so you can go up to 3000 RPMs. The only down fall would be that it would not automatically decelerate so you would have to fiscally turn it down to turn the throttle down.
