    Does RPM fluctuate during vibration or what does the car idle at? These cars vibrate quite a bit naturally.

    The ZX2 usually idles a little rough. When the A/C is on my steering wheel shakes. What I did to help it idle, mine is an auto. Was changed the plugs with autolite iridium sparkplugs. Even new stock plugs would help. Then changed the coil pack with a booster one and race wires. As long as it is not dying its not a problem.
