thats why you need to bump up the idle speed setting, and it is also idle really low when its cold .

idle speed control screw, you need to take off the intake from the throttle body .

by idling low when cold, what do you mean?
will it carry on like a carby car, and want to stall/cough?

One thing to consider - Error codes are logged with the ECU when the ISC is disconnected. But it drives much nicer :D

how do you mean drives nicer?


As mentioned earlier, doenst hang rev's as much, more engine braking..

Need to bump your base idle up a bit, as you lose the ISC bumping it up when necessary (cold starts, load (A/C, steering) etc.)
