Low idle after IACV cleaning

It seems like after I cleaned my IACV, it was really clogged and dirty with black gunk, I cleaned it up with some carb cleaner. But anyways, after I cleaned it, a couple days later my idle is idling at 1 and a half mini bars, really close to stalling. Did I mess something up? I left the old gasket on, maybe the carb cleaner messed up the IACV gasket and somehow leaking something?

Also, I changed my fuel filter yesterday, and it seems like after I changed it, I feel the car is less responsive at acceleration when under 2.5k rpm. Is this normal after a fuel filter change, will it go away?

No difference when I changed my filter.

Your idle I think is fine at 1k. That is where mine is at as an auto.

You could spray crab cleaner around the IACV and see if it surges, if it does then you have a leak.

Try adjusting your throttle and check for any vacuum leaks.
