Anyone know what the proper idle RPM should be post-catalytic converter warm up?

auto is @ 640ish, and the only reason i know is because the dyno tune had a digital read-out viewing screen to watch said event.

Just for the sake of confirming... Mine sits here (~640) as well post-warm up...

Oh, sorry about that, I have a 6 speed manual (I've noticed the ~640 in the past, I'll double check soon to confirm)

I do believe my tuner added 100 RPM to my idle which is perfect as I dont need to tip any throttle to launch the car from a stop unless its a steep hill. So 640 may be spot on.

Yeah, 640 sounds right. I haven't checked exact rpm but it's marginally above the 500rpm point on the dial. If you want exact, let me know and I'll hook up my Torque app...

Thanks for the info. Mine appears to be at about 600-650, so that seems normal.

Just as long as it isn't 666. Then, I would sell my V...

Well if you didn't sell your soul for the V, then someone else did and I think you'd be in the clear...

You'd be pushing mach 10 speeds on someone elses soul! haha
