accel/decel problem 99 lude

First of all posting from iphone, my apologies for lack of searching these forums as i have googled this problem of mine to no avail. Also don't mind the misspellings.

Now i cant say Ive treated this car with what it deserves it was my first car, bought used and previous owner did take care with maintenance every few miles. I did manage to blow a head gasket which to my knowledge was fixed.

Here's the problem: When i start the car it will either idle at about 1100rpm or fluctuate from 1000 up to 1500 rpm and back down. After the car is warmed up it will idle at 1200 RPM and fluctuate up and down fast to 1300-1400 RPM. Now while its idling like this the accelerator hits in very hard and letting go of the gas also hits very hard to the point where it will studder around turns in any gear. I don't know much about cars but I do know that before this head gasket problem that was fixed I did not have any idling problem like this. One step at a time I suppose.

If anyone has any ideas id be completely grateful. Thank you

I have access to a family owned body/auto shop, and my neighbor owns a engine machine shop right across the street.

Everything should be standard other then the air intake which is only a short ram piece of crap.
