First Question..... What is an exhast flexer???? Seeing as how exhast is a gas I can´t see where it would need help flexing. But seriously... When was the last time you checked your ignition timing? Some people make mods to their car and forget that increasing air flow, and/or fuel will mean you engines timing needs will change too. May need to advance or retard it just a tad to get the idle right again. The only way I could think that a bad cluch would cause a low idle is if it weren´t totally disengageing from the flywheel, but you would be able to smell cluch after idleing at a stop light for a while if that were the fact. Also while you are checking the timing go ahead and take a look at the plugs and wires too. Let me know what happens.

Hey Pimp, thanx...I think that question helps me quite a bit too. In fact my car has been idleing a little high the past month, but I did cut the bottom of the airbox off
