Default What's the idle supposed to be set at

After a recent Bama tune the car runs great but the idle is about 850rpm. Just seems high. I did the idle relearn but it just seems a little high. What ya think?

Same thing is happening with mine, I asked them to lower it but it's still high. I did the idle relearn a few times too, the idle is supposed to be around 650.

Did they lower the rpm with a new tune? I think there is away to adjust the throttle body but I'm to sure

I asked them to with the new tune I sent in but it still sits at 800+. I don't believe there is a way to manually adjust it, especially with since these engines are completely controlled by the computer.

Between 750-850RPM is a pretty normal idle. It really depends on your mods, we can definitely look into this for you.

They may have missed your notes to adjust the idle or something, I'm sorry about that. We send out thousands of tunes and build them all from the ground up for your PCM code and your mods. They're not just "canned" tunes, they're built custom by our team, so every once in a while it's possible we mess one up! We'll definitely get it straightened out for you, though! Give one of our Bama Tuning Specialists a call and they'll work with you to figure out exactly what's going on.

Shoot me a PM with your order number and I'll have my head tuning specialist Mike Wilson contact you directly! He'll get you squared away, quickly.

-Dan

That is indeed strange but I do have a 2013 manual if that make any difference, but I don't see why it would.

Anyone else here with a manual care to share what is your rpm at idle?

A stock 2011 Manual Trans idles at 650 RPM.

It is simple for your tuner to leave the idle speed option (along with other items) open in the tune so you can adjust it with your handheld programmer.
