    Hi, I'm new on here but i figure y'all can help me. I have a 1998 cobra with an idle problem. The car only has an off road x pipe and mufflers as a mod but soon after installing the off road x I started having idle problems. At a stop, the idle will drop, sometimes even causing the car to stall and die. I cleaned both the throttle body and the IAC. The car is up to date with all its maintenance and such. Thanks.

    It may be a faulty MAF sensor.

    What kind of air filter do you have? If its oiled Id definitely clean the maf. Is it throwing any codes?

    Stock air filter. I'll go get the codes read. I already have a check engine light because of the x pipe so I'm not fully sure.

    Yea get the codes read and make sure you dont have an exhaust leak. Usually when you do something to your car and it acts up afterwards its because of what you did. Im thinking it has to do with the midpipe
