R56 Mini Cooper S (2007) starter replaced/intake man removed - now SPUTTERING ENGINE

plz help guys.
I removed the intake manifold to replace the starter which had a bad solenoid. Meanwhile, the car cranks and starts perfect now thx to the new starter - however, the engine won't stay on, it sputters between 500-1000rpms and then shuts off. If i throttle full upon starting it, it will go to 4000rpm max and then die completely.
I have checked all my wiring/hoses that i touched a million times, and taken the intake man off/on probably 10x now, cannot seem to fig it out!!!

No Check engine codes showing up either.

Did you smoke test the vehicle to make sure there aren't any vacuum leaks?

Sure sounds like a vacuum leak. I assume you replaced the gaskets.

I just came in from the garage 10 minutes ago. I was trying to replace the starter on my '08 but I can't get the intake manifold off. I tried to follow Nick's instructions and the manifold is loose but won't slide off. I may have missed a fastener. Any ideas?

Did you remove the bolt from figure #14 here? https://www.pelicanparts.com/techarticles/MINI_R56/85-FUEL-Turbocharged_Engine_Intake_Manifold_Replacement/85-FUEL-Turbocharged_Engine_Intake_Manifold_Replacement.ht m

Also, make sure there aren't electrical clips holding the harness to the intake and the bolt under the throttle body.
