Idle in the TBI is controlled by the computer, and other things. Not real familiar with these newer fuel injection systems so I will leave it for more informed members.

My 87 TBI 350 idles high because the main housing gets worn out where the main butterfly shaft runs through it so it hangs up and keeps the throttle cracked open a bit causing the high idle. If I quickly pop my foot on the pedal and let it pop up it will idle down to normal. I have been told you can have it worked over for a couple of hundred clams but I may just go with a aftermarket TBI instead.

It could also be the idle air control (iac) motor. When its idleing high shut off truck for ten sec. & restart it if the idle is down good chance thats it (about $50)
