Windstar Swap Problems

Hi folks. So I windstar swapped my 2000 3.8 and I'm now experiencing issues. On cold starts, it starts like it's warm. Rpms jump up to ~1,300 and immediately drops to 7-800. When the ac compressor kicks in, the car almost dies. In between shifts the rpms drop like a rock, and once the car is up to temp, it idles really rough. I'm assuming it has something to do with the iac, but idk what. I used 3/8in inside diameter hose to relocate it. Is that not big enough? Please help, thank you.
