Default Put MAF screen back in.

I put my MAF screen back in to see what kind of difference it made. Soundwise, I lost some of that engine growl I liked. Performance, I may have lost some low end torque, but gained some upper end HP. Overall, to 80 mph, no effect.

I hope you gave the PCM time to adjust before each change.

My mileage has seemed to remain more or less unaffected. There is a little less throttle response, but the top end seems to be a little smoother. I am probably going to take it back out, because I obviously spend more time at the low end. I did waste a Camaro after I put it in, and never got to the upper RPM range.

I took my MAF screen back out, and had the batt unhooked for about 30 minutes. Better throttle response. I live in the country and was going into town to see my fiance, about 10 minutes away. On the main road in, an Escalade was on my ***. We got behind a slow car, the Esc passed us both, then I passed and caught right up to him. We got to the first light in town, the driver, a late-20'* white guy that tries to look black and appearantly has too much money, decided to go for it, so I obliged. We were kinda close, but I was pulling away, then the weirdest thing happened. At aobut 3900 rpm, I got this huge kick of power like a turbo kicked in or something. My tires chirped, and I took off, probably much to the surprise of the Escalade and me. He probably thought I had nitrous!! I tried to recreate this later, to no avail. Power seemed to be up but not quite as high as that burst.

I am. It did run a little rough on the way out of town. Was it part of the ECU learning process?

There was torque steer involved. I usually don't get much since I got a new diff. It only lasted about 600 rpm.
