Default Life without ISC. What's it like?

What's life like without a ****? Will I regret it if I don't use ****?

When I left my Internet Scrabble Club I regretted it. I felt alone and impudent. They refused to let me rejoin.

From a "running every day" perspective, no, you wont miss it if you don't live in an area where the climate changes drastically. Worst case scenario you will have to adjust your idle via the screw a few times a year to compensate for the changing temps.

For most people, the bigger issue is the car not starting well in cold weather without a post-start idle up. This is the only reason I left mine attached to the car. I set it to only be active on start-up to pull the idle to 1800rpm for a bit and then it just cut out. If you don't mind giving the car a bit of gas on cold starts then it isn't a big deal, but some tend to find that a bit irritating.

Just jack the idle up to like 900 and call it a day.

Is this the coolest latest trend? Why would you NOT want to run an idle valve?

Seriously, I have no idea why you wouldn't run an idle valve. I wish I had one on the turbo car.

Lol, I never missed mine.

For people going with custom manifolds its something easy to just leave out. Less vac routing if external. Less wiring. Less to muck with.

Well, we may want to cash in on this one. Anyone that doesn't want the to MS to control their idle valve, it's an $40 extra.

Welll the reason why is that I am looking at a particular FS IM setup for which the TB does not have an ISC.

Er, um, a mustang TB does not have an isc right?

Not using an idle valve is ******* retarded on a daily driven/street car.
Absolutely mind blowing retarded.


Race car, I suppose you could live without it.

Yeah, having to hold down the gas for a couple seconds on a cold start is such a chore. It's absolutely mind blowingly retarded how much simpler my charge piping is...

Many of us have issues getting our cars to idle steady WITH idle valves.
Unless his hydra has some magical way of fixing it, its going to be a PITA.
Look at all the MS NB users with idle issues. With fleoforas luck his **** will probably sawzall itself.

I made an adapter plate that I could thread barbed fittings into and mounted my ISC remotely. Don't be a ******* vagina, make it work.

My car idled 560s perfectly all day long with my MS1.
Absolutely nothing to control the idle beyond setting the idle to 900.

Granted... no AC or other electrical crap.

If your using an aftermarket ecu this uses the same idle circuit as the miata. Easy to mount and easy to find cheap in junk yards. It's the 2 wire idle valve from older volvos.

Wow way to dig that up. Don't be so butt hurt about my comments.

If you think "war" is not for profit you should take a look at the wealth of the VA counties that lie right across the river from the Pentagon. If you'd like, I could say, "yellow ribbon n **** I support the troops by providing the DOD with mission specific solutions to asymmetrical warfare problems". That's just a more polite way to spin it.

When you come back you yourself could easily parlay your experience into a lucrative career with your paycheck coming from the US government. This is assuming of course, that you're not one of the thousands of contractors out there doing just that. blah blah blah
