Exclamation Clean your MAF and get a Cobb today Pictures up 6-16-02

Today was the first time I attempted to clean the MAF since I have heard horror stories on blowing one but I braved it anyway and I have to say if you have a MY99 (im not to sure about the hot-wire since I only used it on a film) DO IT NOW my A/F gauge is much more responsive car feels quicker all around no doubt from cleaning all the oil that may have accumulated from the filters. I used Revisions instructions from here.

On another note with the help of the brothers Moran, Bugbomb and Konkiler using Danzborin’s instructions we put a Cobb CAI intake on, the power gains are very impressive and I haven’t even done an ECU reset yet, the way we did it differed a little from Danzborin and I should have a write up and pictures tomorrow.

I take it you felt a difference then.
I'm glad you like it. Thanks for having us over and letting us clean up our cars.

I am glad to have my DIY intake back, though it has no advantages. I love the way it sounds, I just wish my exhaust sounded like yours. Your car rumbles more than mine even though we have the same exhaust.

No problem without you and Jake I would still be scratching my head trying to figure out how to put on the Borla headers Tonight my girlfriend and Sean both noticed the difference immediately, and on 270 110 MPH came way to quickly, not that I would ever think about driving that fast. The car pulls harder in every gear and though the entire RPM range. Now about helping me install the cams………………..


Revision Thanks for posting the instucions on how to clean the MAF, even though there reletivly cheap now to fix it feels like a whole different car.

Yup those are the ones, but I just removed the MAF and sprayed electrical cleaner which is available at pepboys or autozone in both ends with out removing the sensor soaked it really spraying most of the can in on both ends let dry for 5 minutes and your done. I also cleaned the PCV valve with some gum cutter since it looked a little crusty.
