Well this is the thing, I only need to know for the MOT, any other time it doesnt matter, I dont know if my rev counter is accurate

The mark just below the 1000RPM is 750 rpm, Yes?

yeh its the first mark under the 1k mark. Cant you just check the idle speed on your laptop? Thats got to be more acurate.

i thought the idle speed was under control of the ecu and not adjustable.
Thats right, but he is running a megasquirt (aftermarket) ECU
