Just bought it 3 weeks ago


Known modifications:

Eibach springs
Caster/camber plates
Poly sway bar bushings/ new sway bars
3.73s
Short shifter
CAI
BBK H pipe no cats
Flow 40s out back

Was a warm idle but can do another video. Trying to learn a little more on this car, already figured it out that the gears were changed to 373's.

A cam is not normally put in with those mods. It's possible, but a vacuum leak will cause it to act like it has a cam. Clean car man.

That is what it idles at when warm and when hot.
Idle screw was checked and is not in contact with throttle plate. Base timing is 11 degrees BTDC. New tps and base idle was performed. I am going to inspect all vacuum lines this weekend.
