VERRRRYY little. maybe 1-2 horsepower. for being free it's a decent mod. makes you car a little (and i mean "little) more responsive and the engine slightly louder. Short Ram is better and CAI even better.

I cleaned my MAF and noticed a little bit better response. Just take it off and use a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol and gently swab the area that the air "hits" there is a small bulb like thingy and if you look up the black plastic shaft you will also see another spot you can clean. Be careful though it would suck to break it. Ps. sorry Im not more familiar with the technical names of the aforementioned items.
