Car was running fine, took the manifold off (didnt touch the TB) to swap motors.
Note: I didnt remove the wiring harness or touch it at all....
Put the manifold back on, car started for a second, sputtered and died. In KPro got a Map sensor low voltage code, figured I got the MAP and TPS plugs mixed up, switched them, car wont start, battery doesnt have enough voltage.. with KPro online but the car not running TPS stays at 112% with the pedal at rest and if I put it to the floor it will read 113% sometimes. Tried adjusting the TPS from one extreme to the other.. still the same 113%
Will the TPS go bad if the MAP plug is plugged into it? Any ideas? I tried uploading a basemap but I get the same result...

low voltage means that you may have a short to ground or low resistance on that particular sensor/wiring. what is your battery voltage on Kpro check for voltage drop at fuse box main fuse and positive batt terminal use the neg terminal and then an engine ground. use a DVOM for this.

The battery is weak but I charged it overnight, car starts fine now, getting a TPS high voltage code... guess its time for a new TPS...
