Hi there, how high are Your idle RPM ? For example when You are listening to Gr.A 106 Rallye´s, their idle RPM is about 1250 - 1500 RPM and it´s swinging too. Hard to say, or maybe that ECU is not enough compatible with those cams, which are more Gr.A. My friend after modifying his 1.4 XSi engine with standard ECU had to change the ECU for programmable one, because it was not able to keep any idle RPM.

hi there i have the same problem , with an opel astra , the RPM swings when the car is on the N gear . any info about this problem ?


well it is actually fine now :) now it lies on 1100 to 950 RPM, depends on how much throttle i have been given.
