Many times the lower boot flap can get caught on the inside of the throttle body. Easy enough to check, just remove the upper intake boot and use a flashlight to look down lower intake boot.
Too late to check, I have the car torn apart including the rubber intake boot. I cleaned the TB again and did an adaptation test and the TB plate seems to be working fine. I'm just not sure how far the TB plate should open before closing when turning the key to the ON position. I also gave the EDK sensor a good whack with a screw driver (figure its worth a shot).
