Do this: Make a heatshield for the intake. Put foil in in the bay so it will block the hot air from getting to ur filter. Next get a fiberglass kit from home depot. Put the cloth down over the foil, then paint the fiberglass mix. Wait for it to dry then spraypaint black.

This will stop that hot air from getting to ur filter and stalling u out. Also, if the filter oil is on too thick... hmmm? Maybe try cleaning it out with a K&N filter recharger kit and re-oil it yourself.

But yeah reset ur ecu like samfris300 said. But if u clean off the MAF sensor inside the pipe, get some kind of spray on cleaner. Just make sure not to touch the sensor with your hands b/c it will break.

Let us know how everything goes.
