    My idle RPM is already set pretty high, it idles good sometimes round 850 id say, and then sometimes it idles at 1000, it kind of fluctuates, its pretty weird.

    Reminds me of a bone-stock 89' hatch I had. Did the same thing......there was actually a recall on this issue. Had something to do with the TB and IAC building up carbon IIRC.

    Anyway, I hope the new MAF fixes the problem. Let us know what happens with that. After 5 pages, I'm dying to know.:??:

    Alright, the Pro-M MAF came in today, and let me just say, as soon as I put it on there was a difference, it idles great now, its not performing as well as I'd like, but I'm gonna mess with the timing, and get everything set where it will do what I want, hopefully it will stay this way and not start acting up again!

    :lol: at Lee!

    Cool mam, hope that does it for you. MAF was evidently bad. Which happens sometimes.

    Cool, I'm glad that took care of it for you. Bump the timing up to about 14 degrees and you should be good to go.

    I'm in the Florida Keys on VACA right now, I'll update as soon as I get back home to it. I wanted to drive it down here, but I felt it would be safer to just leave it at home.
