i tryed to get a shot of the heat shield /throttle bracket bolt set up but my camera was to big to fit in there the cruse cable is held with a E clip and i thought it would be a pain to get off but it was easy just take your time and i didn't even drop it

yes if i had spent more time on it it could have gotten it perfect but i ran out of crab cleaner and no extra tooth brush so i did my best for now the car has to be used tomorrow so it was a compromise at this time till i get a different one to go all out with but for now it will do the job well

and as Wren said the MAF screen dose have a pourpous so i put it back i'm not running anything near the power level it takes for it to be a restriction so in it went as well as when goneville was here he said my uneven idel was from no screen it seem so mutch better all around now so we will see
