S54 Throttle Bodies Alignment/Synchronize

I did a search..

I am looking for the procedure to align the throttle plates in my race car. I have an AIM system that used to read 100% throttle, but now reads 99.2%. Yes I know that is not a big change, but I would like to have the formal procedure that does more than just make one measurement as the Bentley manual states. I found one reference for this document in an M training manual on the S54. It states:

"Refer to the Repair Instructions for the procedure to adjust and synchronize the throttle housings."

That is the document that I am looking for. Thanks, Chris

The manual is probably referring to the TIS instructions.
