TPS replacement tools

As the title indicates I'm like 99% sure I have a bad TPS and am looking to replace it. I haven't done this before so I peeked around the forums and found Jerry B's very insightful guide and then peeked under my hood to figure it out before I went out and bought anything.
One thing I noticed is that the two torx bolts holding the TPS to the throttle body are in a very obnoxious place . Recommendations to make this not a pain?

P.S. this is actually still in attempts to fix the problem I posted about a month or so ago and now I'm down to TPS or FPR.

Spend the money and buy the dealer part. Don't buy the aftermarket part at the local autozone/whatever, the stock piece is the only one that won't give you problems. TPS cost about $60.

To remove, and then install the new TPS, you will need a torx head socket. If memory serves me right, it should be the T15 one. If you can, use a short socket on a small 1/4" wrench (especially if you have BIG hands). Add a drop of loctite if the new TPS doesn't have the yellow already on it, tighten the bolts to 60 INCH lbs., and you're done.

I've replace TPSD in a number of vehicles. Never had any problems with parts store replacements.
