cool Idle and Air box


I have just services my car wif, ngk r spark plugs, top gun 8mm leads, oil and oil filter n cleaned out da inlet system and da fuel injectors, and the car is running so much smoother now, its amazing how much diff it makes servicing ur car ur self, as i was a mechanic at ford for a few days i saw the shifty stuff they do wif pplz cars and how its a rip off but anyway, since da service everythings good cept its idling pretty high at 1000ish mark instead of 6-7hundred its an EB i6 4litre manual....wat is the reason for this.....anyway another thing im doin soon is making a custom air intake box along wif my new hks style direct pod filter, its going to be pretty damn big made outa fibre glass, wif an inlet out the front of da car.....i'll keep u guys posted on wat happens and wif sum pix too......

Re: Idle and Air box

Check your throttle cable and back off the screw a few turns

Could also be the plugs and leads?
Are they colder/hotter or same plugs replaced?
