Help please or suggestions
I have a 2007 GTX LTD and recently fitted the Fizzle external IC. After the install I checked everything was OK, no leaks etc and run the ski on a hose for about 5 mins, no problems. I then took the ski out and after about 5 mins I got a couple of Exhaust alerts but they then dissappeared. I used the ski for about 40 minutes with no problems, however I noticed towards the end of the session that the endine idle speed was at 3000+ revs when it is usually around 1700/1800 rpm. I got it back home and sure enough it is still idling at this speed and 'popping' a bit. Any ideas or suggestions as why this should be will be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Check your throttle body and throttle cable linkage
to make sure you didn't move something out of place
during your mods.

Thanks Foggy, I've checked them and they seem OK. I have done a bit more research and I think it is a faulty exhaust temp. sensor. I think I'll have to take it in to the shop.

If you checked what Foggy mentioned, then it sounds like you have a vacuum leak ... somewhere from your throttle body forward you have an air leak which causes the high idle. What Bobo mentioned is the most common spot to have an air leak ... good advice to check the IC blockoff area very closely since you just added the IC and blockoff.
