That is similar to what has happened to me when I swapped my manifold, except my idle isn't bad, not too long after I tried various different things pertaining to fuel, amount of air flow, my crank position sensor threw a code, so my plans are to replace that, make sure the timing is correct and go from there. I think my timing is off (not sure how I managed that without a distributor...).
