a_2000_se The idle value will be different in gear vs. out of gear and ATX vs. MTX.

At fully warmed up and heat soaked our SPI ATX:

- in gear averages 650 rpm
- out of gear averages 700 rmp

Tymes Mine is on my Garmin which connects to the ECU. It was actually idling even lower then I stated.

Focusblackzx5 Yeah, between 750 and's,s a bit high because it was just after the second start up from the gas station...but yeah between 750 and 800.

I have the Duratec. Maybe it revs a bit higher

Tymes 850? Really? Once mine is at full temp she idles around 680 to 710. I thought that was normal cause I owned a few VWs and they usually idled at 700.

Focusblackzx5 if it's 800-850 should be alright :P no need to adjust that ;)

Svizzara Mine's usually in the mid 800s. I'd imagine you'd have to tinker with the ECU to adjust it... but I can't think of a reason why you'd want to!
