Hey guys so I got a bbk 70mm throttle body.. Before doing anything I took voltage of stock volts and it was at 1.23

After I installed the new one they are at 1.24.. I was also going to install bbk CIA along with it but used stock maf screws and they broke in the intake tube....fml
Sooo the MAF sensor is held together with zip ties and rubber band for the moment... Talk about ghetto
The problem is when in first gear going to second the rpm start going up by them self and instead of car slowing down it keeps speeding up.. And after a while starts shaking ... Like the stalling kinda shakes.. Also check engine light comes on... Also if I start it, put it in first, floor it, second floor and put It in neutral the rpm drop like a exes clothes... But the rpms come back to 1k or watever after sudden drop
My question is that
Is this because of the MAF being held by zip ties n rubber bands or the new bbk tb being off by .01 -___-
Plz help me I'm going Krazy..
Thank you

you may have broken the maf...my '01 f150 had pretty much the same issues after i installed a K&N CAI on it and was kinda rough (years before i knew anything about cars lol). check the maf wire and see if it's in tact...too much of an issue to just be unmetered air, but with the s197's they are a bit touchy so who knows. let us know how the maf looks

The little wires in the MAF seem fine... Is it because its held by zip ties or could the .01 in the throttle body be makeing a difference and making the car run like ****... :(

I don't know if you've fixed the problem yet but get a screw extractor kit. The kind you use with a drill, it will have will steel drill bit with it. Use the drill bit to make a hole through the broken screws and then after you a hole through the broken screw use the crew extractor( make sure to have the drill in forward mode). Once the extractor is in the broken screw turn the drill to reverse and the screw will pull out without damaging the threads . That should get you squared away.
