I am still searching for my rich rough idle problem. Trying to seperate out maybe several problems. When does your car idle rough (surging) with the ecam? Mine surges when it first starts when cold but has a nice ecam idle when warm. Is this normal and will the idle plate solve this? Best place to get the idle plate?

The bad idle does get better when the car warms up. I found that the idle plate allowed a better idle control without changing the stop on the throttle cable return screw. It didn't completely solve the surging, but I think that goes with the cam. After I do an intake, I'll be bringing mine to someone to tune the whole system. I have e303, explorer intake with stock mass air and throttle body and injectors and GT40 heads and stock computer. I've been told that when tuned properly, it should be good for 325hp.
