Idle RPM ?

Real quick from a few members please. What is normal idle RPM for a 2002 LS1.

I don't know if I'm loosing my memory or it's just my imagination, but I "think" my normal RPM was about 800 rpm since new. However, today I took a close look at my idle speed and it's steady at 750 RPM at idle.

The car purs and runs great otherwise. Mods are listed in my signature. My air filter is clean and again my car runs great and still hauls mad ass.

Is this percieved loss of RPM my imagination or what (it probably is)??
