When mine was installed there was an issue that caused the same type of problem. I had a injector that was loose. I hope that is your problem because it takes 2 seconds to fix.

My best guess would be that a vacum line is not attached.

Disconnect your battery for about 4-5 minutes ... Reconnect ... Start up car, let it idle for 5 minutes approx ... See if you still have rough idle ...

one more thing, what do i do with the ccv hose that i detached from the ccv tee? do i leave it connected to the clip it was attached to previously and let it sit in the engine bay? perrin gives you a 1/2" hose and tee with which you replace the ccv hose mentioned above. boy, does this make any sense??? :p

I believe you mean PCV. You need to route it somewhere or you will have oil all over your engine. You should get a Perrin catch can and route all of your vent oil to a can. I have some info here. http://home.kc.rr.com/cerberus/pcv_and_valve_blow_by_reroute.htm
