    Hi Guys.

    I managed to cure my lumpy idle problem. When the car was reved it used to drop to about 400-500 revs then jump up and down and then return to around 900 rpm.

    Well i took the ??throttle unit?? off (the bit that the intercooler goes into, and it has a butterfly in it that is right at the front of the car, it goes into the engine)

    Well cleaned that out with air intake/carbrettor cleaner. It was sooooo filthy, clogged up with siht!

    put it back on and it was fine and has been since. that was last sat.

    Hope this helps others.

    Excuse the lack of technical knowledge.

    Don't worry about the lack of technical terms, just glad to see you got it sorted.
