    i have a z6 sol and it idles at 2300rpm until it warms up. what does it idle at when its wamr?? if it bothers u that much you could turn your idle control down a little bit. mine idles at 400 when its wamrm.

    800rpm is what it should idle at when its at full operating temperature. When it is cold, it should idle around 1600 rpm.
    As far as trying to correct this, try adjusting the idle screw on the throttle body or even checking the throttle cable to make sure you have the correct tension.
