Default Slow to drop revs

Ok so i got a manual 2001 PT when i got it i didn't like the way the throttle took so long to idles down, it would stik around 1500 to 2000 before dropping to idle.
So i replaced the IAC didn't change at all. So after checking for air leaks nothing found.
Then i decided ok ill replace the throttle body with all the censors done this and still its the same. it takes to long to idle down.
Any other ideas as im losing patience and money so far i spent out 200 on these parts and its the same.

Put some lube on the throttle cable itself?
