2000 idle problem

Hello new to the site looking for help on my sons camaro. He install front wheel drive engine in it with help from another site. Runs great until it gets warmed up then it doesn't want to idle. If we unplug maf sensor it runs good it doesn't bring up any codes. He has replaced maf sensor twice upgrading to better one. Hes ready to pull out his hair. If anyone has any information we would appreciate it. Thank you. S/T

Need a little more info here to help out more. Was it a V6 to V8 swap or replacement for blown motor? Is the computer the same one from the donor motor, original to the car, or a separate one, is it factory tuned or tuned with HPtuners/LS1edit etc? Same with the wiring harness. Is it a patched harness or donor harness? Sounds like the signal from the MAF is wrong with what the computer wants to read but not enough to trigger a SES code. Does it trip SES when unplugging the MAF? What did the MAF come out of, aftermarket or another vehicle. Same with the previous ones were they junkyard pulls or new ones? Need this so I can try to see where ya need to go. Push comes to shove you can always SD tune it if it runs fine without the MAF but better to solve the problem first then decide on what tune to run.
