If it idles ruff you should take the dog out of it

Sounds like you could have a vacuum leak some place.

Are you talking about an rough lopey idle like it has a big cam, or surging idle where it idles at 700rpm then 1300rpm, then back down to 700?

Yeah, that would be a good start to try a narrow it down. If you do a search for "surge", you'll be reading for days on all the threads on it. And how they fixed it.
