    I've heard of guys that have not used the sensor safe silicone and they end up screwing with their MAF. So thats probably what happened. Im sure it could happen even with sensor safe stuff if it hasnt cured all the way. They say to be safe and let it dry over night. DID you do that?

    Just let it sit over night tonight, and in the morning reset the code by disconnecting the battery for a minute. You should be good from there.
