91 gt2560r rx8 injectors mspnp2 stock motor, have had a 1800-2k idle and was tuned with such.

This week i had swapped out my i.m. for a powdercoated one with new gaskets and seals, brake cleaned the stupid idle valve(believe for cold start) and plugged everything back in and got a lower than normal for me idle(600) with afrs at 10.0. Assuming its possible i could have plugged in injectors wrong got late and called it a night. Other possible outcome is that changing all this fixed my high idle (though i belive was in my ms, due to electrical random draw would drop idle. mostly when using blinker or high beam change) that my afrs dont know how to read at startup anymore with a normal idle. Today the goal is to hook up my laptop and see if i can find whats going on. Ive recieved similar symptoms with a loose belt or bad alternator causing afrs but usually not idle usually, still i will be checking charging and where its at. any info on possible things to search would be greatly appreciated, as i mentioned my afrs were on point idling between 14.2 to 14.9 at 2k(normal idle) and now all different.

Just reduce fuel in the idle rpm range map. If you had tuned the 2k idle, you never adjusted fuel for your low idle.

I appreciate the reply, stupid me. once i plugged in the laptop saw my vac wasnt showing and realized plugged in source to bov by accident. Upside its all better, downside didnt fix idle. I still believe the idle is in my tune but my friend who is much smarter at this believes we have a leak that we cant find. Truth be told we just got rid of 90 % of the possible chances of leakes there, so im still thinking its in ms
