Why more power at part throttle than floored?

There isnt a way to recondition/repair them. Used or new is about the only way to go. Used is considered illegal but if you do the work I dont see how it would come back to get you.
I was wondering about *ahem* "reconditioning" them to allow better exhaust flow, not necessarily for functionality. Any idears there???
Note: I am in a non-emissions checking area/state.

Got a TPS from a low(er) mileage Loyale, swapped it out and now I have throttle response! It took a little more than I expected to get the old one out (just two screws and a connector, right?) but it was worth it. Hopefully I'll even get better gas mileage out of the deal. We shall see...
Anyone rebuild old TPSs? If not, I'll tear into this one to see if it can be done/if I can spot the problem.
Thanks for all the help!!! Let me know if you want more details.

Tie in a fuel pressure gauge and zip-tie it somewhere on the windshield that you can see from the drivers seat. Note the fuel pressure under WOT.
