Mk3 2.0 golf misfire at idle and acceleration

I have a 95 golf 2.0 5speed I recently finished up replacing the clutch, axles, sway bar links and lca bushing. After reassembling it all I have a misfire but it isn't throwing a cel. Plugs are good,wires, distributor cap looks good and the coil pack doesn't seem to be cracked. I haven't started fuel system checks yet.

Here's the symptoms:
Motor surges and tries to die at idle as it starts to miss. It doesn't do it as soon as I start the car up. It does it about 45 seconds to a minute after start up. and when under acceleration there is a significant loss of power along with a misfire.

Please help. I'm running out of ideas and not trying to just throw money at it and hope it works.
