Thanks for getting back to me. I know rec-90 is low octane. The car typically runs fine on 93 alone, I add the race fuel to fatten it up and to be safe to prevent detonation (and smells better too). It's a low comp. motor (8.5-1), very street-able, doesn't make a lot of boost (between 8-10 lbs. at WOT. Never runs hot, only 185 degrees in stop-n-go traffic. Bad, stale gas makes a car run crappy, and I would agree with what you say normally, but the car is running great other than the fast idle. If its too lean would that make it idle fast?
