Heres mine.



Its about 650rpm (is this too low?) the engine has no problems running smoothly.
I dont remember what it was before i got my exhaust. (backbox withought midbox) Could this have caused it?

what engine? you could be losing significant back pressure which would cause low idling. does it stall at all with no warning? Should idle between 850-1100rpm depending on conditions and temperature.

Mine idles at 800rpm, if it did it before you modded it it could be that your throttle body isn't calibrated properly.
