    proper rpm @ idle?

    I just finished my h/c/i swap a few weeks back and in having a little trouble getting my idle just right. whats the normal idle rpm range? its a pro products TB and i bolted it right on outta the box. at first it idled fine around 900ish but after i put a few miles on it seemed to start idling higher (1200ish) maby even a little higher . at what temp should this thing be adjusted? thanx

    if its idling higher its probably has a vaccum leak. Pro-Products been known to be a poor quailty part. So check for sealing around the flange where it goes to the intake, check around the IAT area as well. Also see if the shaft area of the Pro-products TB is leaking air. if you have no air leaks then check for sticking throttle blade
