Idle a little different after intake

I put a new intake on the truck a few days ago. Might just be my imagination but there is a subtle stutter to my idle that I don't know that it had before. Although I only had the truck like two days before doing it. Actually probably just one....lol. It has been 4 years since my last hemi and I think my 05 had similar idling as well after I put the Superchips on it and I just lived with it. But is this just a Hemi thing overall? My buddies Hellcat jumps around quite a bit too, but I just figured it was probably the cam or something in that thing. What do you guys think?

Idle seems low on the tach too. Only floats just about 500. Probably 6-650?

That's normal idle speed. The engine will shake a little that's normal as long as the engine light is off and it's not missing don't worry about it.

An intake will make some added noise and that may be what your noticing.
