    Need Help Please.

    I Have An 00 Ss M6 With A Loudmouth Cat-back, Slp Lid, Smooth Bellow, K&n, Air Temp Sensor, And A Slp 85mm Maf. My Car Just Recently Popped The Ses Light. I Took It To Autozone, Had It Scanned And It Read That The Left And Right Banks Are Lean.


    Anyone Had This Problem Before Or Know Of Any Remedies To My Situation?

    Maf Is About 2 Months Old. What Do I Clean It With? Ditch The K&n For What?

    You can look up the codes at www.gearchatter.com but it assumes you're stock. Might be sucking in some unmetered air around the MAF, vacuum leak...depending on the code(s). I have the same K&N in my car since '01 and never had any problems - just don't over oil it.

    Pre cat O2 Sensors most likely giving bad readings because of the SLP MAF. A lot of issues with that sensor because of the greater airflow throwing off the O2 readings. If I were you, go back to stock with ported ends and you'll be happy. I ran 500rwhp with the stock maf, no problems at all.

    Oh, I did have an SLP MAF once upon a time to try it out, it just messed up my O2's and made my SES go insane

    Yea iv heard the same rumors as above, bigger maf = running lean. More air less fuel deal. I dont know about everyone else but personaly i havent had much luck with oil'd filters. I got so pissed i went back too paper, you can clean your maf with some crc cleaner.

    I notice as a mod you have " air temp sensor" if that's the resistor mod I would also ditch that.

    Yeah I agree on the temp sensor thing. If that is the resistor that will cause all sorts of things. None of which will give you power
