wont hold idle... MT8

ok. i got my car today. it was tuned at KD rotary and was (i was told) running great there. well as im driving it around tonight, it wont hold idle. if i try to coast it dies. and when i stop i have to heel-toe it or it will die. i believe its running too rich at idle.. i think something like 10.4 when i would die. any easy way to fix this?

also, the choke was removed with the emmissions, so can i use the auxilary function to feed fuel until it warms up? and if any of you have done so what % and HG numbers did you input?

if it dosnt then it needs to be recalibrated.
