Ok...so I was doing a subwoofer install and after I finished, I got so excited that I forgot to put the intake back on (took it out to drill through firewall). I ran the car in my garage for about 10 minutes, and then realized what I had done. I feel very stupid, but that's life. My question is do I need to do anything or take any precautions after this, or will everything be just fine? Also, the MAF sensor wasn't plugged in.

My garage IS a saw mill...man, that sucks. so what do I do now??? J/K
Yeah, I figured that's the case...just wanted to make sure! The worst part is I put masking tape over the intake tube so dust wouldn't get in, and luckily that just ripped open and no tape got inside...

lol yeah.

you might get paranoid and when you go drive it and some very
little minor things happen your like "i hope thats not from that one time"

haha i was very paranoid when i heard my suspension pop except really
loud when i was trying to catch up with traffic redlining. Then i started hearing
little noise or think that it took more gas to move and such.

dont worry about it.

what do you think a mechanic does when an iac valve gets stuck and the car idles like ****?

they take the intake tube off, shoot a jackload of carb spray into the intake at about 5000rpm and clean that ***** out.

youre good homie, relax
