Default Fixed my high idle...DOH! Own Stupidity

So I guess when I took my throttle body off and cleaned it all...
My smart-self, let the TB gasket slip down...amazingly, the car passed smog and got 31.8mpg like this...but when I unbolted the Throttle Body today, the damn thing was slipped pretty far (covered about ¼ of the throttle opening, lol)
Nice quite smooth idle now : )
Always K.I.S.S I guess! lol

when the gasket slipped on my 96 SC2 and I started the engine, it idled at 4000 rpm +/- rpm. my neighbors were really happy to hear that with the cherry bomb muffler that was in place at the time.
