Stupid question: Stock 4.0 SOHC ('04) idle speed?
On my Bama SCT 2 controller the lowest idle setting it gives in 704rpm and it goes up from there in 50rpm increments. With the factory tach it was hard to get an idea just where it idled from the factory and there is no spec listed under the hood. I hate low idles (like 704rpm for instance), but when I set the idle up with the SCT, to say 804-854rpm, the engine revs WAY too high on starts (especially cold starts). I think this may be an effect of setting the idle up. I am going to set it at the ultra-low 704rpm and see what happens. But just what is is supposed to be stock? 700rpm?
