tips / suggestions on removing the screen? we were careful not to fuck it up lol, does it pop out or what?

Here's a suggestion, hit the junk yard, find a maf to practice on lol, I never did it but that would help avoid messing it up lol

its held in by a metal ring, your over thinking the sensitivity of the maf. Yes its sensitive but not that sensitive. Just take a pair of needle nose, punch it through the screen near the edge of the maf and pry it out and the ring will come out with it.

Worked on the tune a little more today, I got the afr's @ wot pretty rich atm though, but I tell ya what, if I'm not making more power then before my butt's a damn liar and so are my tires! LOL 2nd gear rips loose way better then before, and I think the turbo spools faster or atleast harder.

OK so I think I may have found my lean idle issue, or at least most of it..

I let the car run and I cautiously sprayed starting fluid on hoses clamps and couplers, idle and afr didn't change, so then I sprayed the maf plug and BOOM afr went rich as hell, repeated this several times to be sure that's what it was. I also saw that where the sensor comes down inside the tube part of the maf was wet with starting fluid so I let it dry out as I took the maf apart to reseal it.

I was able to pry the plug part out a bit carefully after I took the 4 screws out an I shoved some rtv down in there an then tightened the screws back up, I also resealed the cap, it looks like crap but as long as it works until I can get one of them aluminum housings I'll be happy.

So far its working ok, right away I noticed my cruise afr's were really rich compared to what I had them at, so there's definitely a difference, I made some adjustments and it seems to be doing a lot better, it still stays lean for a few seconds after coming to a stop, but not for 20-30 seconds like it was.

Moral of the story is, going blow through with unmodded 15-20 year old mafs is kinda silly.. but the throttle response is way better then draw through and due to having a better intake setup an straighter cold side piping my butt dyno is sayin I'm def makin more power. Once I get it more dialed in I'll go for some Virtual Dyno runs!
