Recently bought an R34 Non turbo and slowly going through the small issues with the car, but I am interested if anyone can help with this one..

The idle has been about 1.2-1.3k RPM (extremely high) and I had a look for any adjustments that can be made and turned the idle screw and managed to get it close to about 950-1000RPM but this is still not where it should be (recommends 650RPM from nissan) 

The car is a factory auto, manual swapped. Can anyone throw some ideas?

and what if vacuum leak isn't the culprit? or is there any certain hard to find problem areas that cause vacuum leaks?

Also possible that your tacho is out of calibration - I know mine says it idles at 2500rpm, but it's actually idling at 1000rpm. If you apply a correction in the ECU, then you can make it accurate at idle but takes it out in higher RPM. So I just left it.


Other than that, it's likely a vacuum leak. Find someone in your area with a smoke tester and do a smoke test - virtually guaranteed to find something leaking.
