I cranked it up today for the first time in a few days.

Man, it's running rough.

I pulled one of the vacuum lines to see if it changed the idle and the way it was running, and there was no change. So I guess mrj46 diagnosis was spot on, vacuum leak.

The small line going from the firewall to the underside of the upper intake is in pretty bad shape. It's cracked in a million places, so I imagine that's the culprit. Everything else looks fine.

Thanks for all the responses guys!
