Question Help!! I can't get full throttle after CAI install.

I need help figuring out what the problem is with my 99 Rs. After installing an INJEN CAI I was unable to get full throttle. I'm getting the hesitation from hell. I know that it must have something to do with the MAF sensor, but can't pin point the problem. What do I do now? Help!!

my understanding is u disconnect the negative battery terminal, hold down the brake pedal, and bump ur system until the brake lights go out. then reconnect the terminal and drive around like u normally do.

Thanks guys........I'll definately keep that proceedure in mind. I've got a friend of the family that is going to do all of that for me in the morning. But I did find out something interesting that is actually the biggest cause for my Hiccup from hell.......... It's coming from the air filter. The oil used on the air filters coats the MAF sensor during a drive, in turn doesn't allow the sensor to report to the ECU properly, forcing a starve for fuel. Not allowing full fuel pressure.
