Default First run on my kit.

Running the BEGi S3 mentioned earlier with the leak in radiator. It's just a small one, so I started it up anyways. Idle jumped right up to 1500 and sounded AWESOME with the FM dual turbo exhaust and high flow cat. Until I touched the gas and RPM now jumps back and forth between 2K and 3K. Had an oil leak, but it was just because the oil intake line was a little loose. Running the MS PnP standalone ECU with MAP. Going to take it out On Tues or Wed when I get back from a trip and try stock to see if it's the same symptoms. Checked vacuum lines and didn't see anything wrong. When I took a vacuum tube out, however, idle dropped to 2000 and stayed, but I smelled gas coming from the vacuum line. Is this normal?

Just looking for basic suggestions on how to get the idle at least down to 1500. Has anyone else experienced these problems? I almost expected the turbo to decrease my RPMs. That may just be my noobidge to turbos.

Also, I will be ordering the new radiator.
