When I was trying to figure out what would be the correct way to adjust it,
I disconnected the bypass valve on my Contour.  It died.  It just would not
idle.  So, based on this result, I kind of figured that there would be a
different procedure than setting the idle speed w/ the bypass valve
connected.  I know this comparing my SVO w/ a Contour but I kind of figured
there would be some kind of consistency w/ settings on the two TBs.

BTW where should I set my TPS?  I have seen things go around the mustang
news group about setting it to about .990 v.
