Gen1dak will become famous soon enough

There is no MAF. You need O2 sensor, MAP sensor, timing chain gear set. The O2 sensor is hidden in the driver side exhaust manifold, not down near the cat like later models. It is infuriatingly difficult to change. It's easier and faster to pull the manifold off and change it that way. Remember to disconnect the battery so the computer will reset and see the new sensor. Oh, even in optimal tune, you're not gonna burn rubber, unless you slip at least 3.55 gears in there or do some power upgrades.
