Default MY CAR IS FINALLY RUNNING RIGHT

After months of headaches and sorrow my car finally is running just right. The only thing is when it is at idle, it will rev up 2 or 300 rpms and then rev down once every 2 or 3 seconds. Can this be fixed with my afc or not. Either way the good news is that the car is running

I assume you don't have NOS on when it does that You should ignore that the AFC calibrator even exists until you do a NOS run. Using it to fix an idle problem is not the right thing to do . You have another problem that needs to be ferreted out.

The IAC or MAF would be prime suspects in my book.

Ok i did get some carb cleaner on the maf when i had it off. IF my cartridge for my scan tool ever comes i can know for sure. I plan on replacing the sc and tb with one off of a 94 or 95 with the larger openings anyway and i can get whatever sensors i need then. I wont have my liscence for another month anyway

Carb cleaner on the maf can cause problems. You're kinda lucky it even runs. If you get a 94 TB, get a MAF with it.
