    Just an FYI. They now give u a MAF extender so the only wires u have to cut are the ground wires.

    I bought mine used so no maf sensor extender. Wish i just bought one instead of extending it. So I did everything and now my car won't rev past 3k and I have emission, power steering and battery light on. Any idea what it is? I'm guessing it's the wire extension for the ground and maf sensor since I have no experience cutting wires and did my best on it.

    Ah. Yea in my experience with sensors if u don't solder and heat wrap ur probably gonna have problems. If ur not comfortable soldering u can always buy a cheap solder kit and practice on some spare wire. Or just take it to a shop and have them do it. Electrical isn't my favorite either man sorry bout the problem. Hope it all works out.

    go to a place like home depot ( lowes / hardware store / electrical supply / etc) and buy yourself some wire in the same gauge/thickness. You can buy wire by the foot at places like that. Just get the amount you need. Color of wire doesn't matter.

    I cut my wiring and extended them. But if you want you can call Skunk2 and ask to buy the MAF sensor extension clip but me personally I like the clean look of 1 cable vs the multiple clips.
