need advice 05 G35 Stillen supercharger

hopefully that link works but if not:

Anyway< hello everyone. This car I found is pretty nice and i would consider buying it if anyone can give me an opinion on what I'm going to run into, I know you'll be guessing but again I'm looking for ideas. This car drives great but sucks at idle. the check engine light is on and the idle hangs at 2000-2200 and will drop to 1000 for 5 seconds then back up to 2200. We have one shop in our area that tunes these cars, and supposedly they installed the supercharger.(cant get ahold of them so far ) I'm guessing they wouldn't let the car leave running that way so maybe its screwed up? idk looking for anyone that has experience with this, the search button did not get me much info other that someone recommending careful tuning, which is a no brainer anyway.

If the seller won't allow you to have the vehicle inspected by a local Infiniti dealer find another vehicle.
Any defects found by a complete inspection can be used to lower the purchase price

Went ahead and purchased the car and began working on it. Have an appointment with the tuner in September to address the high idle, otherwise the car runs strong. I liked it so much I went ahead and picked up a 2018 Q60 3.0t.
