I doubt missing one screw on the MAP is causing the issue.

Make sure your MAP sensor is making a good seal. When I did the manifold gaskets on my Buick my MAP sensor got damaged and I was having the same problem that you are. I put in another MAP sensor and that cured it.

Glad it is running now.]
You mean a leak with the coolant elbow going from the tensioner assembly to the lower intake manifold?
Did you use the Dorman Aluminum framed elbow?
