Started my M96 for the first time. Rough idle

Hey Guys,

Today I finally started my 996 for the first time after an engine overhaul. I'm getting pretty rough idle. Below is a quick video. Any thoughts? Could it be due to lack of MAF? I'm going to try with the airbox in tomorrow. Also going to check the coil packs.

start by putting back the airbox and connecting the MAF sensor.
