Message TJ as ask him about voltages, he would probably know or could find out. I wouldn't know because I have Tom's tune and he adjusts all that so the car does not run lean. If you're worried about that and are willing to get a tune then I recommend Tom.

The factory programs these out, but aftermarket may not concern themselves with sampling values. Are you sure that the increase in horsepower isn't from a lean condition caused by the MAF misampling the intake charge?
MAF is in the same spot as factory unless you decide to set the tube to a different position, which I'm not sure if that is possible. There are clips that attach the billet that holds the MAF, and I think you can rotate the tube around to a different position but I left mine in the same position.

Juicedz I'm gonna clean my filter tonight. It's been on there about 20k miles and could use it. The only question I have is how long does it take for the oil to dry/cure before I can use?

The one year mark seems like an accurate estimate for cleaning if tire using the car regularly. However, in your case with only 7k miles within a year I highly doubt the filter needs it. Your climate area really plays a factor with the filter though. I spent some time out in Texas with lots of dust and landscaping companies kicking up grass and debris, same here in Florida. I'm averaging about 15-17k miles a year. The car sits outside too :-(

I would recommend to clean and re-oil it every year. More often if driven in dusty areas or raced.

Sound good?

Why was I under the impression we don't have to clean the filter but once every 50k. I've put 7k on my car, I'll have to check and see when I installed it, sure it was last summer. I'll have to visually inspect the filter also.
