Pffft.... High Idle :(

Well, after replacing my TPS, the car is so fun to drive again yay!

But...
Sometimes it tries to idle between 1100 and 1500 rpm...
Usually drops to about 1500, holds for a sec around there, then will drop to about 1100. If I leave it to idle at 1100, it will sometimes drop, after about 15 seconds to around 1000.
It only does this in a strange pattern, after driving around for a while it will start doing it, and do it for a while, don't know if its a warm-related issue, but it very well could be.
Any ideas?

This may be due to a vacuum leak somewhere. Check your vacuum lines for cracks.

Excuse my ignorance, but what is a TPS?

I'll go check the lines, I did replace the intake boot though...
TPS - throttle position sensor, or I guess I've heard throttle switch more around the p-cars....

I would check the boot for leaks also and any other rubber part that can crack
