950rpm or somewhere near there, but I turned my down a little with my X-Cal2. I may be wrong, does anyone here know for sure?

Thanks for the replies.

Mine idles a hair over 900, and it seems high.

I haven't owned an automatic in a long time, and I'm used to standards having a lower idle speed in general.
