Ok I didn't finish the question, its idle rough until it warm up then it smooth out and runs good all day, then the next morning same thing. This morning I didn't have to give it gas but it idle rough like it wanted to die out, after about 3/4 mins it smooth out and running good.

That is a lean code condition, check yoru fuel pressure and recheck your vacuum lines and spray intake with choke cleaner for a vacuum leak again. It rpm changes you found the vacuum leak.
