It sounds like the idle air control valve (IAC) may be stuck with carbon build up. You can ether remove the IAC, or if your lazy like i am, buy two cans of Throttle body cleaner. Just follow the instruction on the can and pay attention to the IAC, try to spray the Throttle body cleaner hose towards the IAC. DO NOT USE CARB CLEANER, it's too corrosive to the gaskets used on throttle body's. If your going to remove the IAC, The idle air control valve is located on the back of the throttle body. It has an oval electrical connector and two torx screws holding it in. Unplug the connector, remove the two screws then lightly tap the body with a soft faced mallet to loosen it from the body. Once you have it out and prior to installing a new valve clean the seat inside the throttle body where the idle control fits. This must be very clean! Installation is in the reverse order. Btw, to save some cash, pull the valve out and clean it, this usually fixes the problem for quite a while. Look for crushed / cut, just any signs of damage to the wire harness to your IAC. After you have cleaned the IAC and still have the problem, you may have a bad IAC and needs to be replaced. Good luck and hope this helps.

It is most likely from that actually. You may need to adjust the air / fuel mixture after modding the intake. Sounds like its getting too much air.

Do you have a rpm guage? If so see is it moves when cranking, if not the crankshaft sensor is bad and is located on top of the transmission bell housing. Also it can be scanned to confirm a faulty sensor

Uncouple the fuel line coming from the pump at the carburetor, place a clean can under the line, and have someone operate the starter--you should have fuel shoot from the line in spurts as the engine turns. If it does, then the entry port on the carburetor is plugged. Remove the float assembly and pull out the float needle valve. Hook the fuel line back to the carburetor and try the starter again, there should be fuel pumping into the float bowl. If not, check to see if there is a filter on the fuel inlet path that may be plugged. If no filter, remove the float needle seat to see if something is blocking the fuel passage. If all else fails, use compressed air to blow backwards through the needle seat (remove the fuel line again). Hope some of this helps!
