hahahahaha.... I did that when i installed my itake piping, i knocked the idle speed control plug out and it took me 2 hrs to work out what was wrong. I was is stitches afterwards. It wouldnt idle at all and was blown heaps of smoke. I wont do that again.

Dude just check everything round your throttle body.

I was actually thinking do I have to reset the computer for the AFR to adjust itself for the mod but that didnt work LOL. Anyhoo took it for a run in the cold air last night and f**k me the throttle response is heaps better and it was easier to light up too :twisted: Did my own little quarter (by no means perfect clockwork) and managed a mid 16!!
