Default Engine woes

Pulled engine and transmission on 2002 Forester.
Replaced bad transmission and did timing belt/waterpump/etc on motor.
Motor starts and dies,threw code for TPS,checked and set TPS and still doing it.


Any ideas? (we've gone over every vacuum line)

Have you checked the voltages on the tps when closed and at WOT?

'starts and dies' -- is it a sudden shutdown (electrical), or a slow death (fuel, air) ?
