1982 380 SL with 560 engine

I recently aquired a 1982 mercedes 380 SL that has the engine replaced with an 1986 560. The engine idles at 1500 rpm while in park and drops to 1100 rpm in drive. Can anyone help in telling me what has to be done to adjust the idle speed and what rpms it should be set at?

Thanks.

Air flow meter adjustments or problems by using the wrong engine with the wrong computer.

Can't really say. You are using a newer motor with an older computer/chassis/wiring combination.

What does your service manual point to or say on this problem?
