Default just completed manual swap, but have issues

hey guys,

woo hoo! just completed a manual swap on my legend.

I used Crowings DIY for reference... thanx for the writeup! just had some issues after putting everything back together. don't know if its related or just coincidence.

my idle is about 500 rpm or so higher than it used to be on initial cold startup/warmup. 1500->2000-2250. i didn't pull the engine out, did everything from underneath. i didn't disconnect any vacuum lines aside from the brake booster & charcoal canister. oh yeah, i didn't cut any resistor in the ecu.

yesterday, when it fully warmed up, everything was normal. today my temp gauge is barely moving, even after being fully warmed up & driven.

also, my radio sometimes writes in chinese.

91 Coupe, 6-speed tranny, 91 ECU

Any advice is greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
