Icon9 Rough idle...yes I searched the forum

Having a rough idle after installing a skunk2 intake manifold. Has your usual bolt ons, aem acc pulleys and is tuned on a hondata s300.
All maintenance is up to date (serviced within last 1000miles)
Mounts are good.
Timing belt and balance belt are both spot on and brand new.
The only variable is the manifold.

Before the manifold it was perfect. Now it has to idle at 1200-1600 or it rattles my brains like none other.

What would you guys recommend my next step be? If this exact situation has been covered please link me or pm me. I used the search function on the forum (key words : skunk2 intake rough idle) and on google. Nothing popped up with anything relative to my issue.

Sound like a vacuum leak. Do you smoke cigs? If you do that will help.
