Idle setting

What should be stock 302 idle rpm? Mine gets up to just under 2k at start up, within a couple seconds goes down to about 750. It seems fine, but then again this is my first fuel injected stang. It seems like my carved 85, idled just a little lower. Around 550-650.

EFI engines have in their computers a warm up mode. This mode runs the engine at a little bit higher rpm to help the engine heat up. The colder it is outside the longer it can take to heat up and for the computer to allow the engines RPM to idle back down. This feature is normal for EFI.
