Sounds like the timing is off, if it is stock you should be able to time with a light. If not then by ear you should hear the engine smooth out when you get it close. It will be easier to start and stop sounding like you need to replace a lifter.

try this: after you start it floor it for 1-3 seconds then the idle might go down..
