Default Vacuum seems low after +t and new timing belt

So I recently completed the +t and timing job on my 1993 244. Just installed AEM boost and wideband gauges. The AFR looks ok at idle. Haven't checked it under boost yet, but the vacuum at idle seems low to me. Car has 140k miles and I compression tested the B230f prior to the +t, and all cylinders came back at 180-185psi, which seems pretty spot on. I'm thinking maybe I'm off a tooth on the timing. She idles perfect though. Thoughts?

You could easily be off a tooth. The engine will still run fine at idle.
