    Set idle Rpm when engine is warmed up ?

    Hey guys what is the set idle rpm for a hot engine ? 2002 wrx sedan no EMS (only Catback and Intake).

    When i turn on my car ( hot) the idle is at 500 rpms ? im really concerned about this because ive read multiple times that the stock idle rpm is 750-1000 .

    Please help

    You cannot read 500 RPM on the stock tach. The base line is 500 and the first line 750. Where is your needle?
