Unless you want to break 2nd gear loose. But then again, I guess you gotta start with torque!

jbspy, you really need to put the stock exhaust back on the car. I don't have 3" on either of my cars. And it'* for a reason. Although I might be approaching the need for it on the Zilla, you're far from it.

What WillWren is saying about your exhaust is key if you want to gain back some possible lost torque. Although it sounded to me like you T'd it where the muffler used to be. In my opinion the restriction for torque is the exhaust manifolds, downpipe and piping before the muffler. The muffler probably contributes the smallest amount of backpressure.

If you like loud...I'm sure you've got it. If you want torque to spin the wheels.. you need backpressure.

THROTTLE.

That is the MAF screen. It helps the MAF sensor get an accurate reading of the incoming air. Leave the screen. It'* certainly not a restriction for your car.

The quickest S1 and S2 daily driven L67'* on this Forum both still run MAF screens.

if you want to clean the intake, then take off the throttle body. very simple. and if you're going to clean the throttle body, make sure to clean the maf sensor with ONLY maf sensor cleaner. anything else can damage it, and those are expensive. if you are gonna remove the screen to clean it, just take a pair of lock ring pliers and take out the lock ring and pop out the screen

I thought isopropyl alcohol was OK for the MAF. I've done it gently with a Q-tip on both cars already and been fine
