I am having issues with the car idling after getting my MS Installed and I swear on MS1 there was a setting to tell it where to idle at and I just can not find it in tuner studio among the other things I am getting used too.
I made a data log, it goes to 3700-3800 and sits there upon start up and then starts going back and forth up and down.
Here is my Data Log:
This is on a 2000 Miata using a AbeFM MS2 unit, the Miata is NA currently this is just me getting used to the new setup. (This setup does not use Joe's spark mod FYI)
I believe this is my latest tuner studio complete file, I just saved it after not closing TS after coming inside.
Any and all help would rock, thanks!

Alright I am at my wits end. I tried looking through the old tune file that came with this MS for version 2.1.0 I believe. I made some changes as a test and I still have issues but now the idle is just jumping up and down but never drops below 2700.
Last File ran before trying to mirror many changes from the old 2.1.0 tune:
Current Tester Setup:
I am really at a loss here I don't even feel like I can make a dent in this. Please guys, this idle thing has been kicking my butt.
---UPDATE 11/29 10:30PM----
I thought I found something.... but I only ended up scaring myself.
So I was looking through all my MS files I keep as backups (I had some really old stuff lol) and I had downloaded a group file that I guess Abe made that contained two MSQ's.
I loaded the newest one up and the issue was the same but he had quite a few changes across the board so I figured why not.
I am uploading that tune right now as we speak.
But I played around and found this:
Basic Settings -> CLT Based Rev Limit
The table really looked strange but then I honestly was not familiar with this tables purpose.
Looking though my idle seemed to be following its guide lines so I said screw it and dragged the plot down (This is all in my Data Log that I have uploaded too) and low and behold the idle started coming right down... but the car started running really rich and not recovering. It also started running like crap and when I finally shut it off sounded like it back fired....
The idle was def coming down I just felt the car was running to rough so now would you care looking things over Brain and telling me what you think?
He changed some of the crank and dwell etc I am curious if I should put those back or not...
But anyway here is the data log:
And the new MSQ:
Well here is the latest log I played around a little and only succeed in scaring the crap out of myself and heating the car up almost to far well beyond the limits I wanted...
I put back in the stock ecu and cooled it off seems fine idles just fine I did not even adjust the idle screw yet.
I have no idea what this is I turned off the Idle Control tried different timing (Which lead to the high heat I am going to go back and review just how high and how long... it still had coolant but it did drain around 30% through the coolant over flow which was almost full as it was).
A scary night with no answers.... I really do not see how the last owner got this running no problems, and I can not even get it to idle.
Reviewing the log there was less than 2 minutes between going from 205 to 250.... just a steady rise like the fans did not even come on it never seemed to just spike but even the dash temp gauge did not move till right near the end when I caught it (the gauges do not work when making changes to menu items so I could not see it on MS itself). I shut it off obviously so were talking less than 2 minutes from rise to shut off but...
I don't mind toys nor what they bring but this was too close for comfort on a car with less than 70k. Now I am going to be paranoid I hurt something.
Less than 2 minutes to reach that temp and I caught it but it does not change the fact that it unnerved me. It only take a split second as everyone likes to say (Including me). The logical side says I am fine I caught it and handled it correctly but doubt never fails on these kinds of issues to make you second guess yourself.
My latest updates to the MSQ for tomorrows tests if I am brave enough:
Alright, with the car running via the IAC unplugged I have been riving it and tuning it as follows. I am looking into getting the warmup enrichment right and smoothing things out but there is still this High Idle Issue if I plug the IAC back in.
I would love some advice on my current msq and the data logs I have done the past few days. I will put them in order from the first day to today's last one.
Any and all advice on things I should look at, smooth out etc I welcome. I feel a random hesitation at times and I am sure its data logged esp this morning as well as being way to rich on cold start this morning but I think I am starting to get it pretty close to being dialed in.

Again they are in order from start to today, the last two are today's.
Here is my Warm up enrichment since I have IAC control completely off (Its disconnected so I believe that to be the proper choice at this time):
And here is the Current MSQ:
Thanks, hopefully someone will have an idea oh and on the fan comment I tried changing it to one and noticed no difference, put it back to 0 and checked to find both fans were on.
