+/- 20% is a 40% variation. If you have correctly calibrated your TPS in Tuner Studio to full closed and full open, a 40% variation in TPS signal is too much for vibration induced fluctuations unless something is broken in the TPS. I would start looking for problems in the signal path such as stray ground currents getting coupled into the TPS ground path and creating ground offset voltages.
