IAC is going to be the next step for a crazy idle. The MAF element is... well the little wire on the end of your MAF sensor. Pull the sensor out of the tube and spray some MAF cleaner (MAF cleaner NOT carb cleaner) on it and gently rub any crud off with a q-tip and re-install.

The revs only go up and down at start for a few seconds

The MAF... In your intake tube. That's as clear as I can be.

No you don't have too, although some can be a pita, the fuel rail can stay on you just have to get creative.. I noticed you got them done though so that's good...

And this is crazy ,but my car started doing the same thing you mentioned earlier.. It started revving a lot higher than normal. At idle and I noticed it when I pushed in the clutch to stop and it jumped right up ?? Let me know if there is anything you've done or something that fixes it because it's starting to bug me

It's bugging me too. Tomorrow I'm going to clean the maf and iac. It's never done that before. It happened after the plugs change after I put everything back on. So maybe I made mistake somewhere along the line of connecting Everthing

Disconnect your battery for fifteen minutes or so while you are cleaning the MAF sensor. That will clear the computers memory, and it will relearn the new idle trim.

It is good practice to disconnect the battery every time that you are working on anything electrical related on the the engine.

Bad grounds can do crazy **** to the vehicle just fyi. How is the main ground strap on this car? It runs from the driver motor mount to the frame.

I disconnected the plug on the iac and it makes the same symptoms with or without the iac plug connected. Can this be a a bad iac?

Thanks! i didn't know about that one. I replaced my battery ground cable, and wired another 8 gauge wire from the alternator housing to the battery. never made any noticeable difference so i assume my grounds are fine, but now i know to check that one too.
