That is it. ^^^^ I had a cfm tb yrs ago & I couldn't drive it in traffic= very very sensative off idle. Seems like they fixed it w/ a stiff spring.

AllCarFan quick update.

I called Tom and he took over my computer for some datalogging. Started up the car and let it idle for about 5 min. It idled down to about 1100rpm....just like stock. I started the datalog session by taking the car out for a quick test drive.

First impression....intake seems pretty good. I couldnt really get into it, but the car drove like it was stock. One thing I did notice was the gas pedal was very stiff. Maybe because I have not hooked the cruise cable back up yet? I dunno, but I liked it.

Looking fwd to getting my initial tune from Tom and being able to get on it. Tom did suggest with my mods that I get a that is next on the list once I get some more moula.

wrc_fan The car will idle high until your tuner can make the adjustments. Mine had a very high idle, as the IAC control was way off.

Personally, I took the weight savings with the cruise control delete :D
