Default MS-1 Idle Issues

im having a couple issues, first on cold start it revs up to about 1500 and drops to almost dying 3-4 times before it starts idling smooth. secondly once it has warmed up it dosnt kick out of the warmup mode down to the 900 rpm i set it too. So tell me what i did wrong, i didnt change much from the MSpnp Base tune
as always thanks for helping this noob out.

This thread has a LOT of information on tuning MS1 idle:

I probably just need to consolidate what's there so that we can have a sticky on the subject.

There is a sticky for spark. Look here and click the "Much ado about Timing" link:

You pretty much have to go to the dyno to tune spark. I'm experimenting with Virtual Dyno for street tuning, but don't have a foolproof procedure written yet.

i think the dyno place down the street does megasquirt so i will leave that alone for now.
