Rough Idle

I recently replaced the return lines and injectors.

It seems to sound a lot quieter (less knock), better pedal response, and a little more power. But one thing I did notice is that in gear at a stop I'm getting a little vibration from the motor. It's consistent, and I'm wondering if the timing is off a little.

Any thoughts on how to correct this???

I can say from experience that when it's rattling a lot at cold idle, you can still advance it a little more and the rattle doesn't get any worse. I was afraid it was going to have scary knock if I advanced it any more. I only noticed the change when running at road speed, it is a bit louder there which tells me it's pretty close. The power doesn't seem to fall off when the cold advance turns off anymore.
