700 is basically perfect.
Is it rough at idle? Check for air leaks.

Sometimes I notice a roughness at idle, sometimes I dont. Whenever I do it's always when I'm sitting with my car running, in park, after driving somewhere. It's never at first startup

Change the plugs for starters. After that check for air leaks.

alright, will do, another question would be I get a shudder from time to time at ~60 miles an hour. It's somewhat violent, a left-right kinda thing, doesn't effect the car's direction.


so far I've been told to balance my wheels
