Poor warm restart idle and more

Kneale:  I suspect my 200 does it once and a while.  I suspect its the idle 
stabilizer valve getting stuck in a possiton where the idle dies off.  Car runs 
crappy when cold at idle unless encouraged by throttle.  I just keep my foot 
into the throttle and coax it by technique.

Its time to pop it out and carb cleaner the insides.  I put in a new BPV last 
fall so its the ISV as shown by this test last year:

To further explain it, we swapped ECU's and the car wouldn't idle.  
Disconnected the ISV and voila! run run run idle!.  Sometimes the CEL comes on after a 
hard run too.  Then it goes out in ~20 minutes or so.  NOT related to ECU swap 
(just conicidence)
