Newbie 700 ranger TPS

Hello all just signed up. And yep you guessed it. Looking for some help. I have a 08 700 ranger and having the old TPS issue. Problem is I followed the long version. Set my TPS to .528 with butterfly closed cable disconnected and idle screw backed off. Adjusted idle screw so TPS was reading .660v. Readjusted pedal cable so I had full sweep to 3.6v and now it disent even run. Any thoughts ? Note. Kinda strange I had to turn the idle screw down 2 1/2 turns to get from .528 to .660. Unit is over fuelling and backfires. ?

Update on my machine. Turns out I had a bad plug wire. Hence when I set the TPS it would stumble and stutter. One plug white an one black. After getting new plugs and wires I set my TPS to .580 base an .710 idle. Funny though I rechecked my vin and it is a 08. When I used the 08 spec I .528 and .660 my idle was to low. Idle should be 1150. Top end RPM is around 5500 in high gear.
