Hey toosweet, before you panic, check the throttle valve cable, maybe it got disturbed or pulled out of adjustment when you changed the shifter. The cable attaches to the car/tpi throttle lever. Where the outer cable attaches to the bracket on the manifold, there is a square black thing with a silver tab. Push the tab in and hold it, and then push the cable housing all the way in. It kinda slides, the silver thing locks the cable housing in the bracket. Then let go of everything and jack the throttle. The cable will pull out to the proper adjustment automatically. Keep your fingers crossed!
