Idle problem fixed!!! 4th gen si (4ws)

So at long last I fixed the idle problem that has been stressing me out since I bought the car.
When i first got it, smoke would plume out of the exhaust pipe (burning oil/bad piston rings) couldn't pass emissions.. I'd say I went through 4 quarts in a day... On top of this there had been a funky idle problem whenever I'd throw the car in neutral while I was cruising down hill. The rpms would roll up to 2500 and stick until I came to a complete stop, finally dropping the idle down to a bouncy 200-800 rpm. The whole idea was that the iac was bad and I had changed it at least 3 times before ruling this out (as per honda service tech).
Eventually I let the motor go, stopped filling oil and waited for it to blow, dropped a new motor in thinking it would solve the problem. (H23a1)
Problem wasn't solved, however when putting the new motor in I had used the same throttle body/tps. The idle problem persisted. Last week I took the throttle body off, cleaned a used one I got from a junk yard and threw it on and the car operates normally now. No one ever suggested a bad tps at all. On top of this cruise control works now too!!!
Long story short... If your having those idle problems and rule out vac leaks check out the tps... Mine was loosey goosey and cause a world of trouble.. Just figured I would write up an accomplishment 😁😁👍👍👍

It's groovy when folks solve the issue on their own.

Even better, when ya post the solution.

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
