all 1500s have a different idle speed from cold to hot...
me thinks you are over thinking this thing....
My last one, which I remember the best, a '98SE....
When first started, it would not idle below about 2000 rpm, and if I left the mixture at that setting, it would soon increase to 3000 rpm and higher.
I would reduce it back to 2000 rpm as I suited up ATGATT, and by the time I am ready to go for a ride, it will come down to about 800-900 with the mixture all the way off.
The actual idle when hot, will be determined by the cable next to the fuel cap.... some folks like to drop it down to 750 rpm.... I don't, I prefer to keep it at 1000...
why? the alternator works better, simple as that.
