The same thing happened to me after my gen II swap. Apparantly on the Gen II there is an idle adjustment screw on the throttle body. I adjusted it until the idle was about 800 rpm. I am not sure if the Gen III has the idle control screw, however it will not hurt to check.

I just swapped a gen3 in and I'm pretty sure it doesn't have the idle screw. I believe it just adjusts the idle automatically. Mine also idles quite a bit lower than my gen2 did. Mine idles at about 700 or so when warmed. What rpm is yours at?
