CEL - Idle Issues

Took my RX8 to AutoZone had them run a test and these are the results I got in the image. I already had all 4 solenoids replaced (except the wires), all 4 spark plugs replaces, alternator & battery replaced, and had my SSV (secondary shutter valve) cleaned as it was built with carbon, and the alternator replaced. I am curious on if I should get the whole intake manifold tuning valve replaced or what could be causing these issues:

Car wants to stall on idle and rpms fluctuate as if there is an oxygen or air leak somewhere.

Can reply here but would prefer kik if possible "VToriaDonovan". Thanks!

On your bill, it says right at the top: Replace Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor. A simple cleaning COULD do the trick.

But I would also test the function of your ssv. There is a thread in the diy (or troubleshooting) forum that explains how to do the job. It's very detailed and easy to follow.
