Here is some context about the engine. So I bought this engine a few months ago, which was a JDM Ej205 imported to a warehouse in the east coast. I just installed it, everything has the U.S parts, cam sensor, knock sensor, connectors, all the bolt ons ect. including the U.S ECU. Just the AVCS is not wired, and I do not plan on wiring it.

ISSUE:
This engine does not want to idle, I need to give it a little gas then it starts to idle a little better. However, when I don't gas it it goes to 500-600 RMP then occasionally make a very loud popping noise when idling low. Then when I gas it, the engine sounds like it's misfiring, but the CEL is not on... The popping noise is near the passenger side of the engine. It sounds very concerning.
