    Is the car stock or modded? IIRC 500rpm is where it's supposed to idle, been a while since I've ran stock idle.

    500 rpm is the base line on the tach. The first line is 750 rom, not 500. Are we all talking about the same rpm?

    If u JUST flashed it, it'll idle a little low and have ****ty low end throttle response for a couple miles, take it out on the road and drive around a couple minutes, do a couple WOT pulls and it'll smarten up..... You gotta let it learn the tune and adjust to it
