Check to make sure the spark plug wires are routed correctly. Then open the hood at night while it's running. Get a test light and ground it and then use the tip to trace each wire on both sides/thoroughly. If a wire is compromised you'll see a spark jump to the end of the probe.

If that doesn't return any results my next question would be when it idles low is there a sucking/vacuum leak kind of noise?

An intermittent low idle can be caused by a bad/going IAC or an upstream 02 sensor.
