Plug in the three exhaust sensors and wire tie them out of the way, clear the codes and the idle will be normal.

I got 2 of the sensors srewed in the bung and pluged in and 1 sensor I am having a hard time removing from the stock exhaust so the sensor furthest back isnt pluged in or on the new exhaust could this be causing the idle to be high ??
