Does it make any strange sounds?Does it lose power after some rpm?
It sounds as the maf died.

Cam shaft would make a noise if its failed. I would go for the simple stuff first, check all hoses on the air intake system. Unplug the maf and see if the car runs any better, if it does then it will be the maf.
