My build works consistently except for idle after running 70MPH for a while. Not 65, but 70MPH. She doesn't want to idle afterward for 15 seconds or so and then she's back. Engine temps are under 220 degrees @ 95 degrees F ambient or less (two up) for extended runs (oil cooler), and there's power to spare under all conditions. Even in the mountains she runs good. Even on Ethonol she runs good. Even on 87 octane she doesn't fart, and, runs good. I'm wondering.............I've tried bumping the PC idle fuel/[email protected] zeroTP-experimented a lot. Not much if any difference. Anybody want a shot at why she lowers idle after roaming @ 70MPH for a while? :coffee: Chuck

Mine used to do the same thing. I found the IAC stepper was sticking. I sprayed some sea foam into the hole that is in the throat of the throttle body and flushed it out. Has worked great ever since. Do a search and you should find more on the sublect. BTW IAC stands for Intake Air Control.

i wouldn't hold the finger over the iac hole. i had a high idle problem while running the t-max and the pdf said to do this and did kill the motor. no intake leaks load new revised map and it won't idle, reload old map and it still won't idle, change iac unit back to racing idle. what it did was kill the iac solenoid.
