Hey,

um, this prob is like do to the power steering kicking in or something, just for some reason noticed this tonight, prob totally normal but i was just kinda like wtf mate (lol love that flash) but I was sitting at a stoplight, and kinda adjusted the wheel a little bit...when i did this i heard the engine rev, did it again just slight movements and watched the car rev up from Idle (700 RPM's) to about 1100 RPMs, whenever i turned the wheel a little bit, is that the powersteering comming into play (my best guess) or is there something wrong here

No I think that is normal....the car is compensating for use of the power steering pump and adjusting the idle. I have noticed this on my car as well.

it is caused by the powersteering pressure switch. the computer see's an increased load and adjust's the idle.
