High idle?

So I've been driving my new mustang a few days now and noticed that after it gets warmed up it idles right around 11-1200 rmp. The car is a 2002 roush stage 3, so not sure what normal is, it just sounds like it's high, but it could be just the way it is. Any thoughts?

Re: High idle?

sounds high to me. Put a tuner on it and adjust it. If it is cammed out someone may have up'ed the idle to prevent too much lope.

Re: High idle?

If a tuner isn't an option, there should be an idle adjustment screw on the throttle body you can turn out to set the idle right.
