Trying to deal with a rough acceleration/idle issue on my ba falcon.

Replaced plugs/coils/gaskets/fuel filter and PCV.

Issue only really comes about when the engine is hot and is significantly worse when I turn the AC on.

The reason I'm heading towards serpentine is turning the wheel will cause severe vibration up the steering wheel (as part of rwc I replaced lower ball joints and away bar links) however as soon as I apply revs it disappears.

Please help, I'm at my wits end and just want it running nicely!

Edit: also how loose should the belt be. If I lift it, I can take it off the pulleys. Never dealt with auto tensioners before.
