MAF cleaning

Hi, just doing a mini tune-up. Is it ok to pull the MAF Sensor to clean it even if there is no problems related to it.I mean can i just unsrew pull it out spray clean it and plug it back in and start the car up and drive? Or is it something u dont want to touch, move around and handle it to much.Its a 2003 boxster.

Hi, Congrats for your car .
Regarding the MAF I wouldn't touch it unless you have some sort of problem, it must be working just fine. Where in Canada are you from?

Talking

Hi, yes that may be true but I think it's more of a side effect from having to replace the sh!!!ttttty MAF with a $200.00 new one, makes us feel better if we convince ourselves the car goes OHHHH SOOOO MUCH FASTER

when my MAF went bad, it felt as if it lost about 200hp, so getting a new one did really improve things.
it was bad tot he point where i had to push it back in the driveway, couldn't even drive it.
