fuel pumps in the tank....see the wires on top of your tank in the boot, under there, plus for idle problems id check vac leak from the MAF or crank angle sensor

MAP sensor is on the firewall, yes (assuming this is a 6 cyl).

The crank angle sensor for an EF is a hall effect sensor mounted on the engine, behind the harmonic balancer.
