So i got her in, did the bb mod and i thought i hooked up all the hoses and what not up right, but now the car wont let me rev past 3K and the first time you try to start it, it dies, but on the second try it starts up fine. Ive looked and searched at tons of pictures, but still cant find what i need to see in them. I drove it home for about 5 miles or so and it ran fun, but just wont let me rev past 3K.

The other thing i did was clean my mafs. Cleaned it with some CRC brake cleaner and some q-tips. Maybe i ruined the mafs, idk...

Definitely an MAFS problem. A damaged MAFS will limit your revs. This is usually seen when someone sucks up too much water and it hits the heated element on the MAFS. Did you use non chlorinated brake cleaner? Make sure the two little spring-like sensors up inside the middle are still intact, and that there is no Q tip fuzz left over. You don't need a Q tip to clean the MAFS, just the brake cleaner.

^^ i think this is my problem, i used regular brake fluid, now i feel like a dumbass...but anyways i'll have to check it out and see if theres any q-tip fuzz otherwise ill be gettin a new mafs. How much do mafs cost nowadays?

thanks again blue bomber.

New MAFS are over 100, but you can probably find a used one for under that on eBay. Try cleaning it with the non chlorinated stuff. Might just be some leftover residue from the other stuff hurting the readings. Also clean the connectors just in case.

i used that gumout carb and choke cleaner. It seems to work fine for me, actually better than alcohol and Q-tip.
