Question type: Maintenance & Repair

does increasing engine idle also increase acceleration and top speed? i already took care of my rev sync problem, now i just want
a little adjustment to top speed and acceleration...does adjusting the engine idle behind the intake manifold do any good? or do i
change my air pump or air sensor? need help asap...thanks y'all!

adjusting the idle wont increase top speed or acceleration at all look into getting a light flywheel or chip the ecu to raise top speed and you can also raise the rev limiter on rpm i wouldnt mess the iacv or idle air control valve behind the manifold you can adjust the idle on the throttle body butterfly with an allen wrench if you have any other problems i would be happy to help
