This is on both aftermarket ECUs and stock FWIW

What yourdescribing Pete is the correct operation of the idle valve I.e. It adds supplementary air when required to maintain the idle target.
It does happen on any 1.6 NA, 90-97 (for us europeans)...not on the 1.8 NA though.

1.6L service manual says if you disconnect, idle should go to 1,200RPM.

So to tune the idle bypass crew with absolutely no iac contribution on a 1.6, maybe it's better to physically block off the air hose to the iac valve..? Cos right now I just use warmup mode and just dial it down until I just get the idle valve duty to a step above the minimum value.
