04 Ralliart idle and stall problems

Hey guys, I searched and found several threads about this, but no solution.

When I first start the car, it idles fine. When driving during warm up, when I push the clutch in (or shift to neutral) the idle will drop below 500 and back up, causing the AC blower to slow and the lights to dim. It also dies pretty often. After driving a while it doesn't seem as bad, but it still fluctuates pretty bad. The issue is worst when the engine is slowing from higher revs. I've read about the purge solenoid and blocked off the line to the throttle body with no change, and it happens in neutral so it's not a clutch issue, I've checked for vacuum leaks with an unlit propane torch, and there are no codes. Are there any other things to check?
