Event.

Default I just went with the show car event.

I'll probably stick around my car,
especially if it's hot out since we'll
have a tent... unless there's something really
new and special that I haven't seen before.

Default Well I put a bunch of stereo in my car so I decided to jump into the class. I don't know if I will

have a chance, but what the hell. Let people see what I have done.

Default damn that hitachi maf is WAY different than the Bosch.. just throw that bad boy in the dishwasher..

pots & pans .. j/k.. 91% alcohol.. put the sensor in a ziploc bag.. pour some alcohol on it.. swish it around a little.. and then let it air dry..

Default why yes it is... some advice..

i know others say that 90% or better is fine, but i would highly recommend higher. go to longs drugs (if there is one around you) and pick up some 99%. it does make a difference.

get a big ziplock back, pour in the bottle, stick the sensor in, seal, and shake awake.

you dont really have to let it sit over night. a little air drying is fine, especially with 99%, once some air hits any residue, it will go away.

for some reason, the 99% cleans the maf a whole loads better. it may be just me, but i had to reclean the maf with regular 91%, but when i did it with 99%, never had to do it again.

Default If the car has no idea how much air is getting in the engine, how does it meter the fuel?

Something tells me running around without a MAF can't be good, if it's even possible to drive the car at all.
