    Ok thanks. I'll try that
    is it safe if the MAF cleaner gets on the sensors?

    yeah, that's the whole point. The main reason you want to use MAF cleaner and not some random electrical cleaner is MAF cleaner won't leave a residue.

    Yeah it worked!
    Nice. And the thing that the cleaner is made for that
    I noticed the throttle body was very dirty inside. Do I clean that too?
    Or wat do I use

    that throttle body is very easy to take off which would make cleaning the backside of it easier. I normally use carb cleaner but in a pinch you could just use that maf cleaner if you wanted. Would be a good time to do the throttle body bypass. Just make sure you purge the air from the cooling system if you take the tb completely off. You can probably clean it fine just by spraying it real good without taking it off.

    Bt the the carb cleaner or the MAF.
    I am gonna bypass the TB
    I'm gonna get a polished/ ported TB
    i'm gonna do it when I get the slp air lid
    one other thing I wanted to do.
