    Yep - I did a write up about this some 6-9 months ago !

    I'll see if I can find it !

    EDIT - here it is :-

    This is for version 908 :-
    Ignition on - engine off

    Select Engine controller 01
    Select Measuring blocks 08
    Select 'Go' in Group 1
    Start Engine ( you may be able to start engine earlier but I don't )
    Hit 'Turbo' button at top of page
    Select 'Done'
    Select Adaptation - 10
    Change channel to 06 and hit 'Read'

    First figure shows actual rpm
    Stored value shows rpm as originally set ( mine is 840 )
    New value will show same figure

    Use up/down buttons to change revs and when happy press 'Test' to see if ok

    If ok then hit 'Save' and close otherwise fiddle around with revs and test until happy.

    If like me you are bothered with rough idle/tickover use mikes guide to turn revs DOWN,
    yes that's right turn them down for a while I have been turning mine up (thanks Ewan)with little improvement, to my surprise I have just
    turned rpm down to 800 rpm with INSTANT improvement :) :) :),
    It has only been 10 mins so I guess time will tell

    hang on a minute... i thought that.. when you start it up it revs about 1200 or so and then the revs settle at 800 anyway within a minute... so is there any danger in having them that low?

    Is there an advantage having it lower than 900?
