check your timing. running an atmospheric dump bov? might have richened it out n pulled the timing. hows power while youre driving? should be low if its timing.

Dunno how I missed this topic, so sorry for the late reply. Sounds like the idle air control valve is sticking and/or the passages are excessively dirty. In either case take it off the throttle body and spray it down with some non-chlorinated brake cleaner and get it nice and clean, same with the passages the plunger goes into. If I remember the only 'special' tool needed for this is maybe a torx bit (T25 or something about that size).
