I need to hit mine up again, after I did this for the first time My truck had a nice snarl in the exhaust note it did not have before.

To be safe I would use MAF Cleaner. That is all I will use on them at work.

Just did my 06 Screw 5.4 today and cant believe how easy Ford made it to remove the mass air flow meter. Took 10 mins to do.

Question

I've never compared it to MAF cleaner, but I previously have been told that brake cleaner is good to use. This was basically an experienced shade tree mechanic, but it worked well on the vehicle I had at the time.

Cleaned my MAF but my check engine light remains illuminated, any ideas on the probable cause? codes of both P0174 and P0171 are what i was given in the diagnostics.
