The erratic idle may be related to an airbox problem. It heats up and swells and some plastic parts jam in the idle control valve. You may need to replace the airbox, or get your dealer to do it. I am wrestling with the same issue. There is also a software update from the dealer that addresses this. You may need that too. There was a service bulletin that addressed this issue way back in 2007. Good luck getting your dealer to handle that.
Once you fix that, you can explore the wonderful world of fueling issues and dyno tuning with power commanders and gizmos that enrich your mixture and life.
