Engine or exhaust issue???

Hello all
I have an 08 si with a small issue that my self or mechanic can't seem to figure out. My engine vibrates and exhaust sputters/pops at idle. The car is stock and I have changed the plugs, coil packs, 0/2 sensor, checked for vacuum leaks, and no codes are coming up. The only way I have found to resolve this issue is when I turn the fan or AC on. Air blowing on the engine seems to make it all good again. Everything else is great on the car, it starts, drives, and runs beauty!!
Any input would be greatly appreciated! I have searched the internet high and low but could not find any info regarding this.

After spending hours under and inside my engine this weekend, I can conclude
''Twas a valve cover and spark plug tube gasket issue.
