I guess if u popped off the airbox lid..u might be able to hit it with spray..it takes like 2 mins to take it off box lid though..not hard.

It might be ok to do this, but it's safer to just take off the MAF sensor, it's easy to do. Just did this recently.

I bought the truck from the OO in 8/1/2013 for $900. It had a burnt exhaust valve. I just threw some heads on it(5/1/2014). Ford has many good engines, the 3.0 Vulcan is not one of them. I bought it for the price.
