Will vary with the on/off cycling of the compressor.

I am at about 600 to 700 RPMs. When I first turn on the car, the RPMs will not drive the AC at the RPMs I'm running. If I step on the break and then give it a little gas, the AC starts cooling at about 900 to 1000 RPMs. I guess I need a little tweak.

Do a search on IAC - Idle Air Controller - I believe that should boost idle when A/C comes on.
