Because I removed the AAV, my idle tends to be a little low on initial startup - maybe 300 rpm's. but, it will idle without me adding any pedal. as the car warms fully up, the idle goes to about 1,050 [without the A/C]. i believe it drops to about 900 with the A/C.

My point being - - i have the idle adjustment screw turned all the way in, and the lowest i can get my idle is 1,050 when fully warmed... I'm sure I have a small vacuum leak somewhere, but have not been able to track it down...

I think it was JFairman that posted a while back a device that he hooked to the rubber 90* elbow right after the FD. It basically plugged the elbow along with injecting compressed air downstream... I tried to pull this off, but didn't have any luck. Maybe I'll try again - - I'd like to get my idle down to say 900...
