Vacuum leak is what I suspected as well, at least it's cheaper and less
threatening than a timing belt failure.
Idle is 800 rpm
boost readout (CPU indicated) is 0.5, sometimes 0.6, but never 0.4
I will take another look at SJM's site and the back of my engine, could
be ordering another $90 hose :(
On another note, how does one clean the MAF sensor? Is carb cleaner too
abrasive? I heard that electrode contact cleaner works well.
