Just turn the screw down on the throttle body.

Alternatively, search for "base idle", and you will find the proper procedure for adjusting the idle.

also check your ISC, Mine just died in the a**, revs sat at 1300rpm. disconnected it and reset the base idle and 750rpm idle.

If it's still running the auto computer, you probably only need to add the neutral resistor, as per the conversion doco. 6.8kohm.
