you will need a compression guage that goes in ur spark plug hole if im not mistaken...at least thats what we used to use on jet ski motors.

go to autozone and ask for a compression tester. You skrew the end into end of the spark plug slots, then let the car turn over 3-4 times. also, when u r at autozone, ask what the gauge should read for your make, model, and year.

wait wait
before you pay for the IAC take yours out and check out
see if they look like the ones in my picture. no need to buy it if you dont need.it

IAC wouldnt come in to effect as far as performance while cruising or WOT

check vacuum, compression and everything else mentioned
