For the first year of using it, i set it once and did not make any changes to it...i lived in missouri, and it was during fall/winter/spring. It never saw summer until i moved to dallas.
the idle is rough, initially i had problems where the car died at traffic lights/jams, but somehow i got it figured out a little, it does not die anymore.
If you dont mind the problems, its well worth it, i would have to say.
But for now, i use the MAF only for races, and put the stock airbox back for street driving...i get better mileage with the AFM rather than the MAF (240miles compared to 200)
do some research before you fork out that $900 smackers...
But a lot of people say the limiting factor about our cars is the flap on the AFM.
hope this helps
