Default Spits and dies, cant idle

Hello forum
Last weekend I had changed timing belt, waterpump, v-belt, oil, oil filter, spark plugs and gasoline filter.

Yesterday I then started the car for a test run, but the engine was acting very weird. It spits from the exhaust when ever I leave the gas, and If i don't give it gas it will shut down and needs to be started again.. RPM is between 1000-2000 and dies whenever the gas is not on.

Anyone knows what can be wrong, and where to start looking?

Did you have any sensors disconnected ? e.g. idle control valve (stepper), throttle position sensor, MAP sensor? Sounds a bit like something is unplugged.
