    850-900 is where I tune most cars to depending on the size of the cam

    After doing my t5 swap and installing the sct chip, my idle jumped to 1050~1100. I bought this IAC restrictor, u can make ur own, it should lower ur rpms and go down quicker. I've yet to instal it though.

    at first start up the idle is very low and seems to almost wanna die if I don't give it gas.. if it sits for past ten minutes or so and the engines is warm its not as bad and starts to then idle somewhat right... thanks again for replys

    My 347 idled good at 550. I kept it at 750 though. There is no reason an H/C/I 302 should be any higher.
