yep, quoting so i don't look so dumb

do you have a lightened flywheel?

No sir. In fact I have the 1.8 flywheel in my 1.6.

I assume you're MS-parallel, and the stock ECU is still driving A/C and IAC?

There's not a whole lot to the IAC circuit. Assuming an NA, it gets its power from the same white/red wire that drives the injectors, then it goes to ground at the ECU through a blue/orange wire.

I'd check that you get +12 on the connector with key on, that you have continuity to the ECU on blue/orange, check to see that you have a finite non-zero resistance across the IAC, and physically inspect it to see that it's not jammed up.

What ECU? My car runs on a Haltech E6K. So, is there any workaround so a standalone knows to bump up the idle to compensate for AC?

if the 91 has a 1.8L motor in it.... port spacing is different on the 1.6.
