I unplugged the maf and the car drove fine for a few miles until it complained about it being unplugged. Plugged it back in and it was doing the same issue it had before.
I'm going to have my shop test the fuel pressure. Regardless I'm going to plan on replacing mine with a Walbro 255. I've been reading about those and they seem to be a good pick for FI applications.
