But my idle still surges a bit but not terrible. I still think the tune is not totally correct.

I plan to get Eurocharged to do my tune in the near future. Remote tuning was such a PIA.
I have heard this as well but I do not think that this is the issue. The idle issue started immediately after I installed the returned AA computer.
