Exclamation Update On my IS300

So I haven't updated in a while. Here's what is going on. As everyone knows I have replaced the following and then began getting multiple misfire codes:
1. Valve Cover Gasket
2. Spark Plugs and wires
3. All Ignition Coil Packs
4. Throttle Position Sensor
5. Cam Sensor
6. Crank Sensor
After sitting at my dealership for a week, they fixed the timing issue and had to replace another part. I can now drive the car but it idles to high, and they are suggesting the idle air control valve be replaced. I am out of funds at this point to pay for a new one. Suggestions?

is there any other shops in your area that you can consult with? (The dealer will charge you an arm and a leg for anything to be looked at)
do you have the actual codes that we can reference?

did you remove the idle air control valve when you did the valve cover gasket? make sure you didn't put the baffle on backwards.
