    Yes, you may, but I wouldn't waste that good stuff (MAF cleaner) on a throttle body. Use the cheap stuff (carb/throttle body cleaner) on the throttle body. (But definitely not the other way around.)

    I haven't used CRC MAF cleaner, but I presume CRC MAF cleaner is a non-residue, electrical contact/parts cleaner (I buy mine at Radio Shack). Those little sensor wires in the MAF need to be free of residue, otherwise they're not as sensitive as they should be and will not give accurate readings.

    Most throttle body cleaners contain stronger solvents that are too harsh for those little MAF sensor wires.

    well I used it and wow what a difference ! My mechanic had said it was only getting 7 lbs of air running @40 mph. He said the norm was around 23 lbs. He was right..........took it for a test drive and your could tell a SOYP difference

    I just left the TB on

    on the MAF SPRAY ONLY...........on the thottle body spray/ wipe and also spray into your intake for 4 seconds. Make sure everything is dry before you crank you car. It will sputter a little then it will smooth out.
