Out of ideas on what to do

Disconnect the battery and the mass air meter, clean the meter and let both set over night. Reconnect everything the next morning and see what happens. If it doesn't help you might new a tps. You could even disconnect the iac overnight as well. Your just clearung the codes from the previous iac and cleaning the maf cause its always in need of cleaning.

This sounds like normal operation to me...

Have you checked for codes?

All sensor codes that fall out of spec are stored by the computer. OBDI code readers are less than $25 these days. Code info can save you big $$$s from buying parts based on guesses that are otherwise good and not in need of replacement.

Big time. The ECU needs that feedback to maintain the correct AFR.

Check this for a $25 code reader.

Check for a chip in the J3 port of the computer. No chip = No tune.

Check for another vacuum leak. Try to get the engine to idle with the IAC unplugged. It shouldn't be possible. If it is, listen for where it's sucking air from.
