try as i suggested, go out, wind out 1st gear, then stop and put it back in, the wind out 1st gear again. that'* the only way i noticed a difference

I have a feeling that it isn't going to do anything to help performance by putting it back in. The only thing it seems like it would do is hurt performance by restricting the airflow. On the '98 & older the Throttle body was a different style, and those are the ones that usually have the problem, but I have rarely ever, actually probably never heard of anyone getting worse performance on a '99 or newer after removing the MAF screen.

I always tell people to leave the MAF screen in if you do NOT have an aftermarket intake. Otherwise I've had mine out for quite a long time and the day I took it out I noticed an increase, if anything, in acceleration.

you shouldn't need the pliers for the snap ring, just throw the screen back in, you can probally leave out the ring i know i did
So, how far back do you stand to toss that puppy in there?? And is it underhand or overhand??
