Default start/ no start runs bad

Well i fixed the death squeal with a new cam synchronizer but then i accidentally ran the engine without the back to injectors connected. After reconnecting them the engine will barely idle. The engine rpms will vary from about 600 to 1500 and sounds like its constantly missing. It also sounds like a HUGE vacuum leak which doesn't make sense because i put all new gaskets on the intake manifold, and they are the rubber inserts so i know i didn't mess them up. Also if the engine dies or you turn it off, you have to wait about half an hour to start it up again. Another note is working the throttle body open and close doesn't affect the engine, so it doesn't move under its own power. Any ideas?
