I have a 94 gt with a few mods and i had a sct 4 bank chip burnt for the car and for some reason the car just decides to rev high at idle and other times it idle smooth and perfect. All the sensors were checked when the tuner burnt the chip. It just makes no sense how it runs great and everything and every now and then the car just decides to idle high. I have heard bad things about the 94-95 computers. Its like it is sensing that the car is cold so its idling high almost like a choke. all i have to do it tap the gas and the car wil idle back down perfect and run smooth. Any suggestions. Maf, tb, iac are all clean and good.

When it took an hour for my tune to settle out, it was because the Adaptive was maxing out.
Your brand new custom tune should NOT be maxing out the Adaptive.
The tuner owes you a fix... they missed something.
Be polite and cordial when you talk to them, as pissing off the guys that can help you is seldom a good idea.
But, they missed something...
Actually, the dyno tuner shops seldom look at drivability....

what do you mean by the adaptive?...yeah i talked to him already and he is gonna tinker with it somemore...i stayed away from the dyno tune because of that reason and found this person that actually tunes by real drive time so he should be able to work most of it out...i have just heard nothing but bad things about the 94 and 95 computer because they were kind of a layover before the obd stuff in 96
I have been told by many that the 94/95 comps don't take well to mods and even after a tune the car can still have kinks here and there just because of how the computers are
A computer is a computer, it does what is programmed to do....... the SN95 is no different in that respect. Are they different than the GUFB or fox units?... yep, and the tuner needs to know those differences. The SN95 ECM also has other features (like datastream capabilities) to help in the tuning process more effectively than a fox ECM. IOW.....all those "kinks" are the tuner's responsibility to iron out..... BTSTDT. It is easy to blame parts when they are not understood.

man the 94/95 computers are not that big of a deal. The difference between the SN95 and fox computers is like the same thing as the sn95 vs foxbody weight differences. It's no big deal but people make it into something huge.
Just wondering, what do you mean you had "a chip burned for your car?" Was the car dyno tuned or logged while driving and adjusted, or did you tell the guy what your car had and he put it in a chip and said here you go? How much time was spent in the actual burning process?
the car was logged with actually driving time and adjustments made. about 6 hours all in all was spent on the tune. no dyno tuning was done because that doesn't account for real time driving. and it was an sct 4 bank chip
