Default Rough Idle when cold

Ok been doing some searching here and I'm going to check the following things
tomorrow. Car runs very bad when I start it up
****NOTE: I don't have WB or MS installed yet so everything is stock, Also changed my plugs today from the colder NGKs to the regular ones.

-Fuel pressure( my pump squeals after I drive for an hour or so)
-Engine Grounds
-O2 (haven't changed since I owned it and It's been about 10,000 miles since I've owned the car has 104,xxx)
-Timing
-IAC
Please let me know If I'm missing anything.
Also did some rewiring of some crap and after my cheap narrowband reads rich now before it was lean......

What map are you running? Are you running a parallel or stand alone?
