    Need help with idle...

    IM LOST!!! I have a 1967 Camaro, Just did a LS1 Swap... Runs awsome, but Im having a idle prob.. It idles around 800... I cant seem to find a vac leak. Ive put new MASS air meter, air temp sensor, throttle poss sensor, IAC motor.... Dont know what else it can be,,, Funny thing is, I can UNPLUG the mass air flow and the air temp sensor and it still runs the same... Should it run without the MASS air hooked up...???? DO I EVEN NEED the mass air sensor....??? PLEASE, sombody HELP... Here is my Camaro.. <br>

    A4 right? My stock tune had the in gear idle/foot on the brake set at 525-585 reading it on a scanner. Park/neutral idle was 645-676. After my Vig install I had to bump the in gear to 750 as part of the converter tune because the idle would sometimes "hunt" coming to a stop or at low speeds in parking lots, and had a tendency to die.

    Figured out my idle prob... Turns out the guys at street and preformance tuned my computer for a STANDARD instead of an automatic.. I told these guys I was putting in a 700R and NOT the 4l60E... They kept trying to talk me into putting in a 4l60E tranny, I had to make it clear that I DID NOT want a electric tranny... The had it set to idle at 800 RPM... Found a guy here that can TOTALLY flash my cars computer... MAN she runs GREAT!!! Idles right at 650 RPM...
