One method to adjust ible

This is one way to adjust idle. There are two hoses that go to the pressure switch for the power steering pump (red hoses in picture). Basically you need to "T" into these hoses and add a valve. You will open the valve to increase the idle and close the valve to reduce the idle.

You can get a valve and fittings at Lowes Hardware.

BTW It's been on my car for almost two years.

I only have mine adjusted up to about 850rpm (1,000) with the A/C on. I have never tried to go higher.

One quick question. If your bleeder T bleeds vacuum to incrase idle, does it not also bleed boost?? Hence a boost leak??

I'm assuming there is a one-way-check valve somewhere in there??

Sounds like the solution to the common idle problem.

The valve does not "bleed" any air. It mearly lets more air bypasses the throttle plate. You have no boost leak with this mod.

Yes its easy. You put more air even when the buterfly is closed. Because one hose id before and second after main buterfly of intake.

It is like you shorten control cable for gasspedal :D

And for another asks: No boost leek beacuse it stays closed system.
