also check the clocking of the MAF. They can be sensitive to sensor orientation

and make sure there's no bends in the air stream right before the MAF body (fenderwell CAI's all have these).

EDIT: and moved to general tech where it belongs.

maybe spray off the MAF sensor with some brake fluid, let it completely dry and then put it back on. Might help.

What type did you buy?

I say, return to stock if you you can't fix.....no sense in having a mod ****-off a wife.

Not for that generation. They is such little gain in airflow that it's within normal operating parameters. Now for 05+, that's different.

On a side note, holy Thread-Resurrection!
