Yea, crazy high. It starts around 1800 and steadily rises without me touching anything. It will keep going until I get worried and kill the motor

I would almost lay $5 down that you have something pinched under the intake manifold, or the alignment dowels are stuck causing a rather large vacuum leak. I had the EXACT same issue when I did my header. Ended up I was torquing down on a crooked dowel and it was sucking air past the throttle body causing my idle to sky rocket. I mean you didnt do anything except put a header and bigger injectors correct? the injectors I would imagine would make it run rougher until you match the extra fuel with more air. my $0.02.......

Nothing yet. Had a rough weekend.
I am going to completely take the intake manifold off tomorrow and start fresh. It's gotta be a vacuum leak do to the fact that I didn't touch anything beside swap the headers and Injectors. I put the old injectors back in with no fix
95yj- are you referring to the alignment dowels coming out of the block,?

Yeah I see it's posted but my bet is that it is not sitting against the head right and pulling extra air in.

Wouldn't a leak on the intake manifold cause a lean mixture causing the engine to die. Not rev higher? This happened to me on my 4.0 head swap. The intake manifold was hitting the headers in two places not allowing a proper seat. Thus sucking in air like crazy. It would not idle unless I kept feeding it the gas.

No it's a vacuum leak so the ECU thanks its idling too low and runs a higher rpm.

If its the intake that is leaking the ECM would see a lean condition and add more fuel since it cant control the air getting in there. Correct me if I am wrong someone. That would mess vacuum up also and cause it to be low as far as the ECM is concerned. Break out the carb cleaner and spray it around the mating surfaces and see what happens.

Yes. but the map sensor is the big issue. It sets advance and would think the idle is low. The O2 is looking at the air fuel mix.

Yes. I think it's a vacuum leak throwing off the map. Make sure to disconnect the battery to clear the ecu.
