did you connect everything ... including that tube from the valve cover to the intake tube??? is it on securely (all the connections snug?) was this a used intake? if so was the filter cleaned???

reset the ECU?

are you talking about clutch in or in neutral... at a stop your idle goes wonky? Is it erratic, or just keeps climbing? Does it do it if you shut it off and restart it... not even move... just sitting there with the engine at idle? Take intake off, watch the throttle plate when this happens, if it's shut, then your IACV is opening up and messing with air flow. This is not good...

one of the vaccum tubes might not be hooked up properly... my friend had a similar problem on a 4th gen from that
