Probably time for a new car, there comes a time when dollars spent on a car will be more than dollars spent on a new car and better off doing it now before you spend the money and the cops attach a yellow canary.

The bad idle would be because of the bigger cam but no tune. For the brakes, check the vacuum hose to the booster.

Can't help you with spark, try doing a error scan and see if any where chucked up.

Check all your vaccum lines are fitted and in the right places, a vac line off/in the wrong place could cause both of these faults
