Default idle speed

Kind of a dumb question, but Ive seen a lot of different opinions so Im looking to see what the popular consensus is.
Whats everybodys idle speed? Any chance yall want to post a picture of what it looks like? Worried mine is too low, hovers just above the little line between 0 and 1k, so I am thinkin around 500.

91' 740 turbo with mitsu 16g BIG
90' 760 turbo stock---this is the one with low idle(or maybe not low)

normally(A/C off):
550+-50 in (R/D/OD/2/1)
750+-50 in (P/N)

Right now battling high rpm problems so add 200-300 to each

Yes, I was being ironic since the rpm speed is same across all those at stop.

Yep, 750 is pretty normal. Mine's up around 900-1000, because I have a lightweight flywheel and get mad vibration and gearbox rattle if I go lower.

Interesting, I might have to try that sometime. I get lots of rattle after the car warms up, sometimes its annoying enough that I keep my foot on the pedal just a little bit to pretend for a brief moment its not a 28 year old hunk, and then I remember buying a 28 year old hunk was my idea, and I love my 28 year old hunk. One day Ill have a garage and all the snap on tools I can get my greasy hands on and Ill give her the love she needs.
