Default ATTN: Owners of 94/95'* with the loapy idle

Nate brought this up last weekend at the MNBC meet, and it'* been eating me all week.

Has anyone with this problem swapped out the Ignition Control Module? If so did it fix the loapy idle?

I figured I'd ask here before I go and spend money on something that'* not going to work.

I know mine isn't original. IMine was replaced a couple years ago witha new one (OEM replacement I believe). No idle change after it was replaced, but I have done most of my modding after that time frame If I remeber correctly. I did have the lopey idle when I started to take her apart, but not as bad as nate has it now.

I haven't heard Nate'* lately, but my loapy idle is getting so bad the car almost stalls. There'* almost a 600rpm drop when it 'loaps'.

oil pressure at idle is right around 45 when warm at idle, and under full throttle it climbs up to around 80, or slightly higher -definitely in good shape with oil pressure.

My riveria has the same problem. I read somewhere that the fuel pressure regulator has to be changed Don't quote me on that . I always assumed it was the coil packs but now I wonder?
