Hi

My car idles between 1000 and 1250 RPMs. I've also noticed that my friend's mr2 does the same thing. Is this normal for a MKII turbo? I thought idle was suppose to be at 750 RPMs.

Check for vacuum leaks, first and foremost, then adjust it with the set screw.

Mine idles at ~1500 rpm when cold, ~800 when fully warmed up.
