Got done cleaning the MAF...which for some reason I had not cleaned..ever. I cleaned up the IAC when I did the intake but was too parinoid as with my 87 I sorta fried the MAF when I tried cleaning it.
I just gone done with a 20 minute cleaning session of the MAF with 70% rubbing alcohol deluted with 50% distilled water being VERY careful I used a piece of cloth (pretty much best lint free you can get -- used for cleaning drums in copiers)...
I took it for a test drive and the 2.84 screeched
when I gave it gas
. Seems like I restored about 20lb of torque. I cannot tell about the hesitation yet since I need to wait for the car to get cold overnight but I am SHOCKED that the gunk on the two thermistors or whatever could affect the torque and performance that much.
I was always under the impression that MAF problems never affected actual WOT performance THAT MUCH.
I will get back to see if it fixed the hesitiation. I think the 38-45 studder/shake is still there like before but that is only in 3rd gear. I have a feeling I fixed more than just the power drop.
here are some pics of what the MAF should look like.
