Default High idle

94 miata begi S1 kit. MSPNP . rx7 460cc.

+++++++ EDIT I found the problem. not sure what should be hooked up here though.. just capped it off++++++

Got the car tuned a few weeks ago. drove it back from Maryland to va. a few days passed and i started having a high idle issue. idles between 2000 and 2200. the car drives fine only issue is the idle.

Things I have done to try and correct the problem.

1. I had a bad temp sensor. I replaced it thinking the car thought it was always cold so increased idle. really did not make sense because it was still idling higher than the cold idle setting. but I was told the sensor was bad so figured change it out.

2. i checked an reset my TPS settings. open throttle was 30 closed was 180.

3. sprayed carb cleaner all over the mother f'ing place to see if i had a vacuum leak. i found nothing.

4. checked my idle screw and verified it was screwed down all the way.

5. tap tap tapped on the area around where i believe the idle air controller is.. read a post that someone did this and fixed their issue.

not sure what my next step should be. any help would be appreciated.

That port is used by automatic transmissions. Should be plugged on manual car.
