You have two things that may have happened and there's no way to tell:

1. You installed the wrong size hose and/or wrong restrictors. One does NOT replace hoses with ones that are "basically the same size". You get an old hose and you get the EXACT new one...either OEM replacement or you measure the ID and length and order the same ID and length ID hose based on what is going through said hose.
2. You replaced 983 things at once that can affect vacuum. Was one of the old components crap and you made your old/bad vacuum better and -27 is your new norm? We have no way of knowing.

You need to get this to a mechanic. You also need a brand new MAF and oxygen sensor as your car is quite old and they need replaced and you need to clean your IACV...instructions for that are in the maintenance forum.
