Throttle issue

Alright I’ve never had an issue get this bad so I’ve finally come to the forums. So basically I have a 2001 is300 with about 225k. It has an exhaust leak and needs a tune up but it drove pretty fine for a second until this one day I was doing a little bit more driving than usual and I randomly got a check engine light. It was for tps I think and cyl 1 mis x2 and a random misfire code. it also suddenly started revving high in park and at idle. I also had to press the pedal all the way to get 30% power. then concluded it was tps so I changed it and it only stopped the problem and turned off the check engine light and stopped the problem for like half a day. Than it came back on with the same issue. Then I bought a whole throttle body after concluding it was the APPS. Now the problem is worse, I’m assuming maybe this tb was just defective

any suggestions or advice

What are the cel codes?
I'm thinking improperly adjusted TPS or vacuum leak.
