There was this time when I took off the whole airbox and was checking if there was room for a Tornado Fuel Saver.... no room for 2-3 in. and I was told to save my money on it. Sure thing! Anyways, after I put it back on and started to drive it down the street, when I changed to second gear @ 3000 rpm the idle slowly went down and landed @ 2500 rpm. Don't get me wrong, the pull was awesome @ 2500 rpm every gear change, but I didn't like the idle @ 2500 rpm. Resetted the ECU and it was fixed. Recently, it happened again, but not as bad. It's cold here, so idle when I start the car everyday is @ 1500 rpm. I think the ECU is still training itself. I have had this happen to me twice in two months, so I thought I might share it. Just my two cents...

Yeah my idle is kinda funny in the cold weather as well. The funny part about it is not the fact that it idles high, but it isn't consistant at what level it idles and sometimes the high idle doesn't kick in soon enough and the car dies after starting her up.
