Smile replace Mass Air Flow unit

MAF sensor was faulty and car would barely run
ordered a brand new MAF from ebay
replacement was a very easy job
Car running GREAT now!

forgot a couple entries - so backdating
back in June, I finally got around to fixing the Exhaust
I bypassed the cat and went fairly stock but slight growl
and took care to maximize clearance for winter driving
