For the idle problems I would check around the throttle body and intake manifold for any vac leaks and make sure all bolts are tight. Would also check every wire connector in the engine compartment to make sure they are connected properly and completely seated together. Have done many enigine jobs, but you would still be amazed just how many times a little thing like this can happen.
