Hey there,
Not too sure where to post this so here goes..
I have completed my manual conversion, about a month ago. One thing that is concerning me is that when I put the clutch in, to change gears, the car revs up to ~2500-3000 rpm.
I thought that it was due to me running an auto ECU. I have borrowed a Manual ECU, and the car still revs up like this.
The car will hold the revs for about 30 seconds, then it drops to a normal idle.
What would be the cause of this??

Any help would be appreciated
Chris

I have replaced the Idle control valve, and swapped the Trottle Position sensor. The problem is still there.
