If the vacuum tube was from the fuel rail: You will have had an air leak so unmetered air drawn in - tending to run weak. The normal fuel rail pressure should not be affected one way or the other at idle. When there is a decrease in vacuum (on acceleration) this will cause the fuel rail pressure to raise and then give a richer mixture - until the higher vacauum is restored.
