Codes p2178 and p2187

Stage 2 Apr with 70k total. It's been running a little rough and I just thought it was the newest edition of stage 2. But twice in the last week my car shut off while sitting at a stop light. Today after it did it for the second time it threw the codes. One is "too rich at idle" and the other is "too lean at idle".

Thoughts?

Exhaust leak or intake leak most likely...pop the hood and listen for hissing

Now it's also throwing 0101 which is something to do with the MAF.

Cleaan the maf. Is it in t he factory position? If not, try to get it there. Could be maf related, as that can throw those codes.
