i wouldnt mess with the o2 sensors or the catalytic converter............too much chance in messing them up, even if a product says its ok for them. the maf sensor.....you can use an electronics cleaner/electronic contact cleaner.......works pretty good. i use qd electronic cleaner made by crc. and for the throttle body..........i use seafoam deep creep.

There's a cleaner made by CRC specifically for MAFs. Don't mess with the O2 sensor, if you are, just go ahead and replace it instead.
