The gaps are fine, you actually want them a lil smaller like that when you're swapping to a smaller pulley.

Back in November of 2003, Dr Jay posted this:

That link to the site no longer worked, but if you dropped the vci it does. so it would be:

http://calid.gm.com

When I ran my VIN, it came up with the following updates that were available.

12214054 12214055 N/A New calibration to correct rough idle condition
12202014 12201862 N/A Calibration to correct P1441 from setting on a hot restart.
9391254 9391248 N/A Control module calibration

Perhaps yours just needs that first update? Mine very occasionally has a rough idle, but it hasn't been bothersome enough to me to have it updated.

ok, figured out my problem, so thanks to everyone on here who helped me out! I really appreciate it. I noticed the car was actually wuite a bit faster then before, now I really need to save more for gas!! I think I am going to need a smaller belt or oversized tensioner though, that belt in there is bouncing around a lot, and I mean a lot, when at idle. You can hear it slapping itself and see it at idle. Which one should I do? Thanks again, Brad

A lot of people get the oversized tensioner.

Actually on the 96+ a smaller belt is recommended. Now where'* that silly belt size? I think ZZP/Intense have it on their sites.
