Dean this is a funny topic for me. For some reason DTA leans torwards TPS. This method is like tuning a mechanical injection car. And it also makes for more map jumping to fine tune. It will generally be good for a nice clear day but have issues in drastic weather change as it is very hard to compensate for the drastic change. Typically club cars or N/A engines with low speed velocity work well with this setup.
With MAP it immediatly handles these changes because it is always adjusting to the current conditions. It does still use the TPS to provide the ECU the instant on/off response fuel needed during free reving and transition. But to go this route you will need to redo all your maps, but once it is done you never need to touch it again unless you do major engine changes. PM me and and I'll give you my number, I can further explain my two cents if you are interested.
