OK, iv been searching for about an hour and still havent found what im looking for,
I have a lean code and i dont have a boost gauge or a vag so is there any way i can see if i have a boost leak? or if it is the maf, how exactly do i clean it, or if that dosent work, will it mess the car up if i just let it keep the cel or what would happen if i just disconected the maf? any help would be greatly apreciated

There is a boost leak test in the DIY section. You could try that to see if its a boost leak.

all of them say you have to make sure you dont go over a certain psi in pressure and i dont have a gauge or a vag

Do not disconnect your Maf. Go buy some MAF sensor cleaner and clean it up and see if that makes a difference. Also, look around your engine bay for any visible torn lines
