This car has taken my soul...
« on: December 11, 2013, 06:18:08 AM »

ok so long story short its a 2000 gtp with the supercharger removed and a turbo put in. working on it for a friend... started as just head gaskets but turned into the hardest project ive ever done and ive been doing this for a while now. so this thing was "ghettofied" to the max and i pretty much re-did everything. got it all back together and now the warmer it gets the higher the idle. it didnt do this before i touched it so i cant let it leave the garage until fixed. new to the forum and dont know the policy on first posts but im a very serious situation so please let this stay. any help would be greatly appreciated please and thank you

ps this was originally supposed to be done in 2 weeks, im on week 4...

How high does the idle get?  Do you have a scanner such as dhp or hptuners?  Surging idle at all?

What is the method of boost control and is the car running a custom tune yet?

haha we might as well take what we can get  :laugh: :laugh:

not sure what you're running for basic management but high idle is usually vaccuum leak, i had a big problem years back with a 3400 turbo , throttle body shaft seal was making for intolerable idle / more the car warmed up - higher the idle got, again no idea if this has anything to do with your scenario but a guess in the dark is as good as the next i suppose.
