So MAF is installed but I think you could still fire up the car with the MAF disconnected it would just run funny. It only goes in one way to the pipe as well.After a quick browse of the Vortech manual I assume you checked the MAF and TPS connections and vacuum leaks?
What is TPS?
Vacuum leak, where do I look for this. The pipe going from the BOV to the throttle body? Everything looks to be attached.
