Hey how are you
So when you unplugged MAF runs good , ,you can try cleaning MAF sensor ,they sell MAF sensor cleanerat local parts store , an retest it
Usualy that means clean MAF or new MAF sensor,in some cases , power to it or signal wire is issue but these are extreme cases , if it has over 100k usual time to change MAF ,
Have you had scaned and confirmed codes sometimes it will throw flaf fault p0101 or p0111 can remember exactly which one
Please let me know

Car had a cold air intake when this all occurred , put on the stock intake and it still does the same misfire

did you clear the fuel trim long term when replaced cold air intake with maf

u need a factory scanner or equivalent to do that

or we can try master reset to erase them, the ecm has learned cold air intake value

we need the maf values

Master reset Procedure

1- Disconnect Battery Cables ( Negative & Positive Cables )you can use any electrical wire as an extension if battery cables don't reach .

2- Hold cables Together for 60 secs ,then let go

3- Wait 30 minutes

4- Make sure all doors are closed

5- Reconnect battery Cables

6- Lock & unlock the vehicles using the key from driver door side (if you have a key fob with no blade key, just lock & unlock using the key fob buttons)

7- Enter the vehicle and attempt to start

if I reset it and it still has the misfire what could be the next problem ?

then check for vacuum leaks ,do a smoke test

check fuel pressure weak fuel pump

check intake gasket and intake manifold itself for being warped
