can highly recommend it

thats another of these great almost costless mods..

Cleaning MAF is supposed to be amazing, there was like a 100 page thread on this earlier; I plan on doing mine sometime this week.

With the typical problem of having oil spray from an overly oiled cleanable filter, I would say clean it 500 miles or so after a filter clean. That way you would clean off the oil spray if you did happen to put too much oil in the filter. This is something that I will need to do soon.
