    Clean your MAF & screen.

    I have owned my TA about 9years now and I had never cleaned the maf or screen. The car only have 38,000 miles on it so I felt that it was not in need of it at that point,until I so how dirty it was.Cleaned the k&n filter, the maf, and the screen, I always keep the filter clean but never the maf and the screen. Man what a difference it made. I didn't notice the lost of performance but it's back.want let it go undone again. Try it you will like it.

    Go to autozone and ask for Mass air flow cleaner, I can't think of the maker at this moment, it may CRC MAF Cleaner,it's in a gray can.I found it in the brake cleaner and electric cleaner section. Be sure it says mass air cleaner on the can, I almost picked the wrong thing until I took another look.

    If you have a SLP lid and have issue with removing it.. like I do I just take the lid off and spray it like that.


    If you have a stock lid it pops right out.

    Its much easier to do if its out. Isnt hard at all
