You seem to be describing a rough idle when the engine warms up. If this correct? If yes....ask the engine installer if he checked and cleaned the throttle body and IAC on this replacement engine.

There are many Youtube videos on how to clean your throttle body and IAC. I would also buy some Mass Air Flow cleaner and clean that as well. If problem persists after cleaning, you may have a bad ECT as well. I would change that out also. Keep us posted on how it goes.
