I just changed the heads and went to 1.6 Roller rockers. I would hope the heads flow a lot better than the stock heads lol. The timing was set in the correct procedure however I am going to play with it some more and see what it likes. I just feel that having to idle in drive at 850RPM means something is a miss. It did have to idle fairly high before. Is it possible the new heads and airflow mean it will have to idle higher now? Still seems like something is amiss.

Gone is fuel injected so no carb to mess with. I will open the butterflies a little more but the Idle Air control valve (which is new) should take care of idle air.
