Are there small pockets made in the underside of the orginal old type base plate?.
Because my tuner made total of 3 pockets in there (1x for the idle speed motor, 1x for the 2nd valve motor, 1x for the linkage of the second throttle, this was reported back to CPR in june).
If those pockets aren't there then the base plate isn't straight on the throttle bodies (due to idle speed motor and/or the 2nd valve motor) and is put under a lot of stress.
And can cause early life time failure of course.

P.S for the problem with your new base plate i would contact Chris at CPR, their customer service is good.
