Re: fixed idle


What motor are you talking about?

Was it one particular part that fixed the problem, or did it need to be all three?

I can't get enough of this!

Re: fixed idle

Kick down - I assume you have done the MPFI conversion?
Just wire the gearbox TPS plug into the existing TPS plug - the gearbox and engine computer will quite happily run off the same plug.

Re: fixed idle

Is it a 4 speed? If it's a 4 speed then the dual TPS isn't working correctly.

The 3 speed CFI and MPI kickdown cables are the same, so if you have done an MPI conversion hook the CFI one up.
