Do not use air filters with oil-coated elements. They may cause premature failure of the mass air flow sensor; this is not covered under the warranty.

  • Keep replacing the maf sensor. I recommend getting the life time warranty one from autozone and replacing it when ever the car feels robbed of power. its 4 bolts and a hose clamp and you can swap it out in under 5 minutes in the parking lot.
