    Im guessing your throttle cable needs to be tightened. With my B16, i had to make a bracket for the throttle cable so it fit right.

    I suggest you check it.


    Just open your hood and see how tight it is. Its a common problem many of us encounter when swapping in a B16A.



    . . also, try a search.

    Throttle cable can be completely detached and it will idle fine, it doesn't have shit to do with the idle, unless maybe you idle is high.

    Make sure all hoses are connected, coolant it right, test voltage on sensors, the usual troubleshooting procedures.
