Problem with CAI, maybe

Sometimes when I'm driving around the car, it will just loss all power and basically go into a sort of limp mode. When at a full stop it idles really rough. I just pull into random parking lots and just kill the engine, let it sit for like 5 minute and start it and boom back to normal. It also throws the SC sensor and MAF sensor codes afterward. All the car has is a K&N cold air intake. Had to replace the rudder coupler bc the original one killed itself somehow.

First things first, take off the crappy K&N that's smaller than stock and oils the MAF down. Find a stock intake, put the stocker back on.

Then clean the MAF and TB. Scan for codes and report back.

Clean the throttle body with microfiber rag. Remove the ram air should be a shutter inside the supercharger clean all that out with two fingers until the rag comes out clean top and bottom reassemble and see how that works before getting to crazy with replacing anything

Saturn is gone all that's left is the Redline!
