    hi. ref your high idle , is your idle control valve still ok???
    is it hunting as in its automatically reving itself???
    i have just fitted a jackson supercharger to mine and have the same problem. has your engine management light come on??
    if so i bet it reads map sensor volatage= high
    throttle position sensor voltage = low
    iac voltage = high
    iacv (idle control valve)= complete failure.
    these are all the problems mine has. so results are unplug ( main loom wire) the idle control valve situated on intake manifold next to throttle body, its bolted on by 2 times 12mm bolts and has 2 water hoses connected to bottom of valve. buy a new one and i bet it solves your problems. let me know how it goes. where about do you live, if in uk you can get in contact with me for further help and info. oh and the price of the new valve is $$$$ so be prepared to pay the money. :ph34r:
    good luck
    michael
