Default olds 88 from hell

the past three months have been hell for me and this car.. first the TPS goes so i replace that, then after that the master cylinder fails soo i replace that. then the MAF died.. fixed that then the tps DIED AGAIN fixed that AGAIN then the brake booster died fix that.... so now the car is idling high again and the brake peddle will get stuck at the most random times just like the VERY random idle it comes it goes... so i thought ok must be the lower intake gasket. i changed the lower and the upper gasket at the same time yesterday.. 10 hours of working on the car just for it to STILL have a random high idle and sticking brakes... YAY! (when the brakes stick i have to pull over and turn off car...) so now im think when i replaced the brake booster i got a POS auto zone reman and it was bad from the start and i tried a new check valve for it too no difference =D and i think the high idle might be a bad IAC...
i unplugged the IAC when the idle was normal and drove around for 10 miles with no OD =) and the high idle never came back so please someone tell me im not crazy and its a crappy brake booster and a crappy IAC im loosing my mind.... thank you
