Default code 1297 after timing belt change

Ok, so I got the car back together. I had to push the gas pedal to get it started. once started it it idle kinda rough. When you give it gas it revs very smooth then rough idles again. I also noticed a very hard brake pedal which makes me wonder if there is a vaccum hose off somewhere. By raising and lowering the motor so many times I wonder if I broke something. I found the a/c switch on the back of the compressor was broke off so I didnt have a/c till I fixed the plug. Any ides or suggestions? Would a missaligned timing belt cause the motor to loose vaccum?
Thanks

From what I can find P1297 refers to the MAP sensor.

So before the changing of the timing belt, it was fine. Is the map sensor that delicate. I did adjust the idle on the throttle body, would this have thrown the code?
thanks

I saw a couple of threads where people had broke it doing a timing belt change or even one who broke it changing the plugs.

Our map (maf on the NAs) is no more "delicate" than on any other modern car. They all work the same and are constructed basically the same. They are all equally delicate. Ninety nine percent of the time, if they are broken it's because of something the person doing the work accidently did.

The idle is controlled by the PCM. Just exactly what did you do to "adjust the idle" on the throttle body? There are no normal points of adjustment to do that on our PTs.

Yes, on the throttle body. There is a security type torx screw there. I just turned it a couple of times. I have come to the relization that the timing is probably off a tooth and I will have to pull the motor apart again.....

I would say the timing is off, the MAF code is probably because the intake valves are open a little and blowing back exhaust gases
