    Could be the throttle body mate. A breather hose goes to it from the crankcase and they get crapped up. Take the hose off that goes from the AFM to the throttle body and have a look inside. If it needs cleaning then its easy enough to remove, just 3 bolts and a couple of pipes. There is a how 2 somewhere i think. Make sure you also clean the breather pipe out too while youre at it. Only other possible cause is a faulty coil pack, My old Vec B had a rough idle once and that was a faulty rcoil pack on the rear bank HTH

    Ok ive had a look what pipe is the breather lol i took it off and noticed one of the bolts holes is rounded off so the bolt isnt tightening up and there was no gasket :S so when i put it back together after a clean i put gasket sealant on it just now it seams to be a bit better i think will find out once its heated up better.

    That pipe goes right along the front of the engine and down the right hand side if your looking at it head on.
