rough idle after rebuild 2.5l

got a 99 2.5l that had a broken skirt. rebuild it and was running ok. but recently it has a rough idle and when stopping it idle down to 400 then comes back up to idle. motor shakes alittle. no codes on obII. I know its a 2.5 but I thought it would have a little more power being stock at this point. I bought it with bad motor off a friend so I know issues are coming after rebuild. any clues? I know these issues are a pain to find, but looking to see if anyone else had this issue
