Take it to a specialist and get it sorted. They often idle strange with apexi when air con is on

Car was hunting at idle ect so ive redone the rats nest with good quality sillicone hoses also replaced a few solenoids i broke.

Fitted a dm motorsports idler pully and deleted the airpump, fitted all blockoff plates, removed aircon pump and pipes as it didnt work anyway. Also found a small water leak behind where the airpump was which was a loose hose.

Now idle is much better no hunting or stalling so far when coming to a stop.

Also have a feed downpipe ready to go on and need to plumb my boost controller back in.

Next jobs are fit my koyo n flo radiator and front mount intercooler, downpipe and boost controller then take it to be mapped somewhere .

Car was stalling out at idle when warm, bought a multimeter and checked the tps and when i check it was out, so i set that up again now she doesnt stall out at warm idle anymore and neither when i come to a stop . Very pleased with that .

Cant believe this car performs so well and on its original engine without a build specially after it sat unused for 8 years.

Yeah finally enjoy driving it :), i jet wash the car/under it and the arches after i drive it these last few weeks to get rid of as much grit as possible.

To be fair it doesnt go far probably 30 miles a week.

Just hit 31,800 miles on the clock  :).
