    Hopefully, that bolt will be the last one you need and all will end well.

    It will take it just a bit to sort out fueling once the issue is fixed unless you can reset your trims with a scanner.

    Have you checked your injectors for leaks at the O-rings?

    Ok, I knew you changed out the bolt, but wasn't sure if you had been driving the car. How many miles since?

    I'm also wondering if the intake bellows is ripped and causing a vac leak.

    That should be long enough for things to settle back in. I really would like to see those fuel trims.

    Well today i drove to work with the MAF unplugged again and it seems like it runs a little better, like the throttle response and stuff but it still clearly smells like gas. I will try to figure out a way to record it. Actually now that i think about it im 99% sure i can record them and post them up on here to watch. But it will be from the app off my phone. Oh well

    It's normal to get better throttle response when unplugging the MAF, because you are then assentially running in SD mode off the VE tables. That's one reason why alot of people prefer the SD tunes, and I've since become a fan of them also.

    In the pics, the MAF looks aftermarket. Unless the MAF ends are aftermarket. If I recall, GMHTP installed one of those CAIs on a project Camaro SS and tuned it.

    Heres a log from me driving home from work. Its not very far and took back roads. Hit about 7 stop signs. A few times i get on it in 1st gear. The sensors are revs, speed, vacuum/boost, MPG, Fuel trim bank 1 and 2 sensor 1. Ignore the E column for MPH.
