Yes. just like the title. I have a rb20det in a s13 hb. It idles real good and steady when its not warmed up yet. BUt once i drive it, it starts to rough idle. How can i adjust the idle?? I did sum research on idleing valve and all that crap about rb but couldn't find none. So i wanted to know from u guys.

Thanks.

sounds like the tps isnt set correctly.
try unplugging the grey plug on the tps when its warm and see what happens.
if it doesnt change then loosen the tps bolts and adjust the tps to the point where the idle changes.

The computer uses the temp sensor for idle inrichment when the motor is cold, once the motor is warmed up it uses the signals from the O2 sensor, MAF, Cam and Crank sensors to determine fuel delivery.

almost right but not quite.
nissan ecu uses the temp sensor to determine how hot the motor is running and what kind of tempature corrections to apply to the fuel and ignition maps.
however if the temp sensor goes bad then it can cause problems but not the ones described.
