make sure you plugged all of the connectors for the fuel injectors.

It would be really easy to get two of the injector plugs backward. You might try pulling the plugs off the injectors one at a time while the engine's running. If the idle doesn't get worse, you know that injector is part of the problem. If you pull off two plugs that don't make any difference, swap 'em and you're back on the road at 100%.
