I did the starter fluid trick-a-roo, and noticed no perceptible change in idle, or the fluctuation thereof after spraying everywhere. (Hopefully eliminating the vacuum leak possibility?) She is experiencing hard cold starts, and I have the very strong scent of fuel at start up, and idle, with the idle fluctuating between 800-1050 rpm. Which leads me to believe that the I am on the rich side. (Is my diagnosis sound? I'm still a FNG!) I am going to take her in for a little dyno/AFR work Monday to get everything dialed in on the 91 octane fuel, and verify the AFR's under load, but I figured in the meantime I will give it a click, or two, toward the lean end of things to try to cure the hunting idle. Until everything is sorted on Monday I will be off high boost levels and just tooling around town, if I do take her out.
Thanks for your advise!

Thank you very much for the tip!
