So I've just done an engine swap and the idle of the car will idle as said in subject. When the car is driving along its fine but as soon as it's in nutral for a few seconds the idle will go back to changing and will occasionally stall. Once it has stalled I need to disconnect the battery for a few minutes to get it to start again.

I did swap the ecu and I haven't had it stall and need disconnecting yet. But I've only tested it once as ran out of daylight.

I've changed the idle control valve, map sensor and my only other thought is the wiring loom.
