actually yes, just about 100 rpm higher or so, and it takes a bit to warm up. my idle is sometimes almost at 1 but on cold starts, it doesn't go past 1200 rpm anymore?

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.
