Dude... caps lock. Just say no.

Probably no one answered his question because no one knows the answer. That's a GOOD thing. Drives me crazy when people guess at an answer and come off like they actually know what they are talking about.

I will guess, but at least I am telling you this is only a guess. The hydrocarbon trap is designed to trap hydrocarbons for controlling evaporative emissions. It is not specifically intended to keep the MAF clean although that might be a secondary "fringe benefit".
