U hit on the nail on the head, if the car runs fine with the MAF disconnected it is the MAF, but try cleaning it first, dirt gets on the little heated wire of the sensor and screws up the signal, sometimes cleaning it with MAF spray cleaner takes care of the issue, the MAF is expensive, the spray cleaner made by CRC is available at most parts stores now. By the way the way u checked the MAF is how I did it in the dealer.
