So in many cases vacuum leaks are the cause but a common problem is the factory seal on the butterflies wearing to the point this happens when held up to light:
My IACV was screwed all the way in but still idled at 2000rpm, each butterfly was the same, so a lot of air be dragged through..
Today was the day to apply Molykote 321
Sprayed it into a aerosol lid and brushed round the edges, left it for 12hrs or so and gently opened them, causing the dry lubricant to crack, close the butterfly to a perfect seal
Held up to the light, and no halo, sweet! Unfortunetly I won't be trying them for some time but very confident it'll work!!
Hopefully this info is of use to others..
