This might take a little trial and error .if no vacumn leaks try spraying carb cleaner or starting flyid at all vacuum ports and linec ,then I would check idle motor for carbon build up underneath take off and clean also clean and inspec tEGR valve ,the throttle sensor could cause high idle but normaly would surge up and down ,may be this is a start.I am asumeing it is fuel injected.

Still nice job. If mine turns out half as nice as yours I will be happy.

Sorry about the typo. It won't be the last typo either.
