MAF HELP

Just installed a new maf from oreillys cuz that is what everyone is saying my problem was. Now my car surges at an idle but runs fine while giving it throttle. If it idle a long time after its warm it like it gets flooded and you have to give it throttle and clear it out. I have replaced the tfi as well and fuel filter. It has a new fuel pump

That may be your problem.
Over the years I have had no end of problems with their electronic parts being bad from the start or failing soon after being installed.

However as suggested, remove the negative battery cable, pull on the headlight switch to drain the system of any stray voltage and wait 10-15 minutes. Then shut off the headlight switch and reconnect the battery cable. Start the engine and let it idle for 5-10 minutes to learn the new idle, then drive it under various stop and go conditions to allow the ECU to relearn the operating parameters.

If that does not work, then test the MAF. There are procedures in the "Useful Info" thread or possibly in your Chiltons manual.
