    Well, I spoke with Mike Miller of Milzy Motorsports on the phone, and he pointed me to my quick-and-dirty twist-and-tape splicing of a new TPS connector. Upon further inspection, one of the wires was tapeless and possibly touching the throttle cable bracket. That would explain the seeming random nature of the issue. At some point in the near future, I will probably solder the wires. For now, I have rerouted the wires away from the throttle bracket, and once I get a hold of some more tape, I will liberally apply some.

    Mike also reiterated a probable cause for my persistent P0171 code: the rear valve cover ventilation hole. It's essentially open and causing a vacuum leak, because I have nowhere to put a hose. I will probably have to drill a hole in the coupler between the MAF and TB to insert the hose.

    It's ok my friend be glad it's not much worse that is small damage that can be easily repaired . Think about it the airbag came out and much worse things the insurance would have totaled it out . Those parts are easily to fine New and from the look of it the bumper wasn't damaged so the fiber glass facia is the only hard part to find in white . Don't you have that old parts car still ? Junk yard run and possible find a white matching clip . Don't be down on yourself my friend you were, A. Able to walk away from it B. She is still drivable with small minute damage and last C. A parts car has what your girl needs for the small repair .
