Bad Tune? Stumped..

hey guys im new here hoping someone can give me some input. well im running an le5 turboed balt and few weird things ..first off i had a few things i thought were vac/boost leaks that sat for a while (might of got tuned with the vac leak present) ..didnt realize me dipstick tube was cracked for a while. well after fixing up a few things and getting it all snug the car will not run with the maf sensor in (brand new maf sensor) if i plug it in the car will just go crazy and eventually stall. so ive been running without it. afr seems pretty good jumping around alot but from about 11 to 14 at idle and down to 11 or 10 under boost not to worried about it being a little rich. but sometimes at idle it will go full lean and get stuck there and just stall. and lastly my fan seems to be kicking on a little late ( i was tuned in the winter and its hot now soo mayb thats y ?) but it seems to be getting pretty hot and for the most part the car goes full lean and stalls when my coolant is at about 207 and the fan isnt kicking hard enouph i guess..but i have seen it stall at way less then that so not sure it thats relative ..anyone who actually took the time to read this mess please share thoughts..really hoping i just need a tune and that i was tuned on a vac leak so now that everythings tight and solid the maf is confused by the extra air ..please and thankz guys

trifecta.. e tuned by vince ..no i havent had it logged in a while..kind of a pain to do because the guys that would come to logg it is a few hours away ..and if he comes out here i just feel wrong not throwing the dude some money considering how far hes having to travel but it blows having to spend more and more money on something paid for lol ..theres a local guy with a great rep by me that says he can tune me (chris miller) but i def dont want to bring him a car to tune that has a problem unrelated to the tune

Chris is a good tuner. If the car has an issue, a log will tell all and a good tuner can tune around it, or fix it or tell you what you need to fix it.. Id take it to Chris.
