Unsteady Idle at Stoplight

Hello All,

I've been having this issue with my car once it warms up;

Basically, when i come to a stop. the idle increases for a quick second, fluctuates up and down, sometimes all the way up to 1800rpm.

Check the videos here:

Anybody else have this issue? Solutions?

107k miles, stage 2, aftermarket clutch + flywheel, 6sp manual.

Try the MAF sensor. Or you've got a bad leak.

You're right it's slow.

But atleast it doesn't look like your cheap looking shit on wheels.

That's what I'm thinking. It strangely doesn't throw codes or show any reduction in the vacuum when the idle jumps.

I had same symptoms and ended up being Pcv. Ce light didn't come on for about a week from when I noticed it starting.
