I have a 98 GMC sierra 5.7 vortec. I am curious as to what other mechanically sound 5.7s idle at becuase I think mine idles to high for some reason. It idles at about 700 when warm. My dads truck idles at about 500 and seems to run a lot better. I would think that all mechanically sound 5.7 vortecs would have the same idle speeds if everything is stock on them...right?
650-700 was the 5.7, the other 96 5.0 idles at around 550.

650 when warm
95 tbi 500 when warm 700 when its cold buds 98 very same
My old truck 95 with 4.3 idles at 500 and my 96 with 350 idles at about 700 so it sounds about normal to me.
