Anyone else get like a mild buck or stutter after acceleration with the cobb intake.. feels like a slight misfire almost. Usually after speeding up and then crusing under low boost at like 4th/5th gear

Are you running Cobb's AP as well or did you just run the intake?

Swapping intakes on this car makes a big difference in power output. You may want to look into engine management. You will notice a large difference with how smooth the power delivery with the addition of the AP.

Would you say that this happens during WOT or during gradual acceleration? Reason I ask is because I do get some rough acceleration myself with my HKS intake, usually only happens at half throttle and only briefly. Would this happen to be what you're experiencing? Just seems annoying, like you said. Haven't noticed anything else.

How long have you had your SRI? MAF shouldn't be THAT dirty unless you've had it more then 6 months already and havn't cleaned the filter or replaced it. I've had about a year now, works just fine, if not better after I cleaned the MAF and installed new filter.

Well, you can either:

A) Clean the filter with the recharge kit every 6 months

or

B) Just buy a new filter

And I would clean the MAF everytime you clean or replace the air filter.

Check your local Autozone, Advanced Auto Parts, Kragen, they should have the MAF cleaner as well.
