Got the laser tach and took a reading. The idle is 990 RPM. Stock is 720 (+-20). How do I go about lowering it?

Never mind. Found it in the workshop manual.

Why recommend going with a 4000 rpm gauge? Idle is correct, gauge is calibrated and needle frequently bottoms out. Seems like poor advice to me. Why have a gauge that can't show you a reading when it's bottomed out? I'm going to sell my 4k and get a 6k gauge. Unfortunately it's too late to return it.

And a 300tdi is that much different?
