Rough Idle, kinda like a moderate cam

My truck has a somewhat rough idle like a gasser would if you had a moderately aggressive cam in it. There is no smoke, power loss, or any hesitation of any kind. All in all the truck runs great, just has a rough idle and I'm wondering if this is normal or something i should be looking into. Its a 5 speed and I already have a solid mass flywheel in it.

1997 F-250 Powerstroke diesel
5 speed manual transmission
4x4 Off road package
FPR shim
DIY Tymar intake
GFS SVO system (runs awsome)
