My EF2 XR6 idles at about 700-800 rpm.
Completly stock except for a K&N panel filter.

Slightly rougher than a stock six at idle, but it changes depending on whether I've got optimax or mobil 8000 in it. it seems to idle smoother on the 8000.

700 + or - 100 is the norm.

my idle

seeing as though this has been mentioned, since i got my exhaust upgraded 2 weeks ago, my idle at a cold start has jumped to about 1100rpm, once the car has warmed up to a good temp, it drops down to 500rpm. is this bad?

why would it have happened after the exhaust upgrade?

cheers guys

Have you tried reseting the computer to let it relearn??? Disconnect your battery for about 15minutes then reconnect and go for a drive.
