Default Car self revving

I just finished installing an ms3x I built up using Brain's instructions and base map. The car is a totally stock 10ae other than the ms3, gm iat sensor, aem x-series wideband, and joyfast shift ****, though I doubt that one has much to do with my problem. The car will start up and idle right around 1500rpm when cold (around 45 degrees) and drops down to 1200 or so as it warms up a bit, my issue comes with the application of any throttle at all the car will rev itself up to around 3500 rpm, hold it for a couple seconds after you've let off, then drop back down to idle.

I have searched around and found info on cars with high idles and acceleration enrichment issues but nothing mentioning a tiny blip of the throttle causing it to rev up on its own for a few seconds with no additional input.

I figure all the stock sensors are okay because the car ran perfect on the stock ecu two days ago. I have checked all vacuum connections that I touched and can't hear or see any leaks. The tune is just Brains base map with the basic sensor calibration done.

Any ideas would be appreciated, I am at a bit of a loss here.

It's probably the shift ****.

If not then check the tune. On certain versions there are "dashpot" settings and I can't recall what else they are called right now. But it will be in your basic idle tuning section. Sorry, post-surgery drugs make this tough.

So I tried to post this in November and as far as I could see it never went through, then yesterday I got the confirmation email. Weird. Regardless, thanks for the suggestion sixshooter.

For anyone potentially reading this with a similar problem, the issue turned out to be a seriously un-calibrated iacv. A few minutes using the idle valve test mode to dial it in and all was well.
