    you can spray brake cleaner on the hoses and around the intake. if your idle changes when you spray an area, that is where the leak is.

    How long have you driven it? Frost says the pcm needs 100 miles to learn air flow. I just did the same thing,(lt's and frost tune) and it idled like crap for a minute, caught idle. I let it run for a minute, then kicked it. It died. Wouldn't start and idle,it would start, then quit. I started it, held throttle at 1k for a few minutes, then it ran again. Idk if this helps.

    i think what frost was saying is that if you disconnect the pcm with the battery unplugged it takes up to 100 miles to relearn air flow ratio. but mine ran great after lt's ory no cat before a tune, for a couple hundred miles then started running like crap but i think i got it figured out

    any update on this problem? I am now having the same problem. I got oil in my maf, throttle body, and it is blowing black soot like crazy.

    those MAF wires are very fragile....hopefully you didn't break one using a q-tip on them. You should always just use crc maf cleaner and there's no need to take the ends off the maf....you can just spray the resistors down. The 02 air system is different from my 98.....I didn't have to plug a vacuum line on mine but I know on the 02's you have too. Hopefully someone with a later model that's removed their air system can tell you what lines to plug. I would start by checking for vacuum leaks by spraying carb cleaner on the lines and listening to the idle.....if the idle changes you found your leak. Like someone else said....that pcv hose that goes into the intake is a good place to start. This is assuming your air hoses are all blocked off correctly.
