There is an idle control motor on the throttle body that may be at fault.
You have thrown way too many parts at this with no results. Have a shop do a real diag for you and tell you the failure.

I replaced most of it cuz I bought it from a friend.(Some friend) but ive had a few ppl look at it and they say it should be running. I just cant figure out what else it could be? Ill try that and see what happens. Timing is on and the harmonic balancer pulley was loose but I fixed that too?
