    I use this stuff on both of my family's Subies. A WRX and an STI, and I freakin love this stuff. Low end feels less shaky, and idle is more stable.

    Well, I experimented it on my vette. No complaints, got many years of grime and accummulation off the sensor. So, while doing other maintenence on my WRX, i used it again, cleans the grime off and made my sensor threads nice n shiny.

    Probably be good maintenence practice say... one every 2 years or filter change.

    Just be sure to actually clean the MAF (sensor hidden up in the tube) rather than just the IAT sensor which is visible.
