Unhappy reflash

i would like to thank everyone for your help. i took my car to the dealer and they performed the reflash, but i still have a little bit of a problem. my car still wants to idle high when its cold. also when i drive it the rpm's dont drop in between gears.

Have you had the intake rudder clamps replaced? There was a TSB regarding these on '02 models. After having this done and the reflash my car idles perfectly. With regards to the rpm's dropping slowly between gears that's actually one of the svtf 'quirks' and I'm not aware of any solutions.

Every single car I've owned (mustang, thunderbird, cougar, zx2, z24) all idle high when you first start it up in the cold.

Put in a lighter flywheel to fix that rpm between gears issue.
