Question about 1988 Toyota Pickup

1988 2wd 22r toyota pickup not idling

Ok so i have a 1988 2wd 22r toyota truck, first off the engine is from an 89, the body is 88, we bought the 88 body because it came from florida and had no rust, we already had an 89 with nothing but rust and a perfect engine, the engine ran like new, so we figured put it in the good body. we had my cousin do this because hes a mechanic, everything works fine and all, runs good, no knocking, starts up almost every time, but wont run under 2000rpm, you have to hold the clutch and press the gas to keep it running, i was trying to sell it but i might still try to fix it if i can, so any suggestions would be appreciated.

    we checked the hose but not sensors, but like i said it ran perfect right before we swapped it and we literally went body mounts to body mounts on everything

    I know you said it was a 22r which is carb. but if it is a 22re it is efi.
    the carb engine does not have as many sensor. it does not have tps, air flow sensor, and may more. in order for proper diagnosis i was wondering which engine.This would accelerate the diagnosis time. thank you.

    Did you guys check the air flow tube that connect to the intake manifold to the air flow sensor?

    Maybe bad air flow sensor?

    Maybe bad Throttle Position Sensor?

You might check the PCV valve and grommet,I'm assuming it's EFI,if the valve isn't sealed tight it will cause the motor die at lower RPM's
