It is between the turbo and the inlet manifold (after the intercooler if you have one).  Large diameter pipes.  Why do you want to change it?

This does not necessarily mean that the throttle body motor is faulty (but it might be).  A better interpretation is "Throttle body reported position inconsistent with commanded position".  This might be a fault with the motor or the throttle body position sensor or simply a sticky throttle body.   First thing I would check is the throttle body itself - they can get gunged up.
