Yeah the MAF Screen is still in, I never touched it.



What all would be involved for taking off my TB and giving it a good cleaning?

different setup I know, but thought I would at least share...

I have the Thrasher CAI with the 9" K&N for my intake, but I am using the stock tubing connecting the TB to the filter itself and I do not have rough idle.

My guess is that with the open airflow and smoother air the AF mix is off. The PCM is not mixing enough fuel at the low rpm to maintain smooth idle.

Easier on a SC than a NA. I suggest buying the book before doing this.
