I've got MAF cleaner here. Takes like 5 mins to do. Also have all the tools needed. I'll be free for a while Saturday morning and early afternoon if you need any help.

How bad is it to spray the MAF with carb cleaner? I started cleaning my throttle body with it in, then removed it to get the tooth brush up in there better. I read in that linked article on cleaning the MAF that you should not use carb cleaner on it....

Car seems to run like it did before. Well runs better actually since I cleaned 9 years of carbon build up out of the throttle body.

I think it'* best to start a new thread if you could. That way we can get more members involved.
