Did you completely disconnect the MAS and clean it outside the car? Just curious how it's done as I've never done it. I'm sure it needs to be done by now.
Yes you have to completely remove the MAS from the vehicle to clean it. Super easy though.

You don't have to remove the air filter housing like I said before.

You can get a bottle of CRC Mass Air cleaner from Advanced Auto for $8. Basically, just spray it down a few times, let it dry, and stick it back in.
