Idle setting

Have a 2002 gt, it wants to die all the time and I even had a dyno and tune, I have a cam, pulleys, cobra ported heads, bullitt intake, jlt cold air intake,shorty headers,bassaini exhaust no converters, sct programmer, I raised the idle to 700 but still the same do u think it needs to be more since I have work done or is it something else ,I really would appreciate some opinions or ideas

So you have DOHC heads with Cams installed in them? And the tune controls the idle. If you actually have Cams I would run around 900 rpms

I raised it to 900 seems kinda fast , at first it was surging big time but now it seems to be holding just seems fast, I cleaned out the idle control sensor but just trying to figure it out

Mine is idling at 900. Been like that for 5 months now.

No problem. It might surge for a day or two but should even up.
