both sound about right to me. You can adjust the cold start, mine is turned of as i dont find it needs it
400 BHP - 650 KG\'s = 616 BHP Per Ton of Rotary Power

That\'s the way to do it! :Thumbsup!

ooh ooh... I know what this is.. just dont know what its called.. DOH! :confused:

its something to do with lower inlet manifold gasket which is letting air in. Consequently, you\'re revving higher.

But i\'m sure, one of the Guru\'s will answer your question.

Sorry shaf, i didnt read your thread properly.... but,  the waxstat which reads water temp and reduces the idle accordlingy gets stuck with age and doesnt release all the way.  If you stand on the passenger side of the engine bay, on the right hand side of the throttle body where your throttle cable attaches is a small screw with a sping over it. If you tighten that screw you will see it pushes the arm further away from the stop, the more you screw it in the less choke you have.  Worth a try.  I had a leaky gasget on mine when i first go it,  idled fine was low but just a bit lumpy, you will know cos you woill get a massive waft of petrol fumes when you get on boost.  It could ne a vacume line aswell.

if it\'s just idleing high when you start the car, then it is completley normal ( eccelerated warmup system). If you start the car with the clutch down and in gear it won\'t do it.
