    Is it possible you have a vacuum leak? Coming from the installation of the new intake manifold. I don't know anything about the Edelbrook carbs. But I hear they work well right out of the box.

    A intake leak or wrong carb gasket could be the BUG!! Try dribbling carb cleaner around the intake to head sealing area and carb base. If the RPM kicks up you found the problem !!!

    So what I would do is take the intake manifold off. Don't use the front and rear gaskets. Get yourself some black RTV and use that instead. Put a nice thick bead in there. Sometimes the gaskets stop the manifold from coming down and sealing properly. I would also coat both sides of the new gaskets with black RTV. Torque it down and wait a day for it to dry. Doing this should absolutely seal the intake manifold to the heads. If it acts funny after that, then the carb is the problem.
