Default IDLE PROBLEM

Ever since I put my throttle body spacer on. My idle randomly goes down to about 300, not good, Even if I turn the idle thing it dont do anything, his there anything I could do to get it up to about 8 or 9 I want to idle it high.

did you disconect the battery before you installed the part, and then connect it back one once you were done? Also, did you let the engine idle till normal operating range?

Ah, yea, I know that! You're supposed to disconect the battery, install the part, connect battery back up, and let the engine idle till operating range inorder for the computer to relearn value after you install performance parts.
