Car Stalling and Choking

I got Simota CF Intake couple months ago. I had some problems with it and I didnt know where the problem was. My car was stalling each time i put it on neutral gear and was slowing down to stop. Not long ago I finally found out bout removing vdaf :/. I know I was waiting too long because I was driving like that for couple months but I learned how to drive not to stall a car. Couple days ago something else started to happening. My car was stalling each time , my technique to take it off gear last second stopped working , car was going off almost every time i was stopping at stop or red light. It also started rattling/choking when driving on 5th/6th gear on lower/normal speeds (40/45mph). I also got CELL on one time when it started choking. Until I got to Autozone day later the check engine went off so I dont know what code it was. Yesterday I took the vdaf off hoping its gonna fix the issue but it didnt. Car still stalls and chokes but CEL is not coming back now. Do you think my MAF sensor gave up because I was driving like that for couple months? or what might be an issue?

First did you search? The obvious answer is no.

Did you reset the fuel trims by doing a 20 brake stomp?

Did you go back to stock to see if it's just your intake?

Did you read the directions carefully and make sure it was installed properly?

Clean your throttle body and MAF sensor. I had the same problem for ages. Cleaned the throttle body last week and the thing runs brand new.

You need to systematically check everything and reverse anything you have done. Stalling can be something very simple or it could be a loss of compression. Either way the issue has been discussed a million times so there is no need for this thread. Once you have read those other threads and tried the most common stuff then it would be appropriate to start a thread on the issues you are having.
