Plastic Pre MAF Screen in Air Intake


Recommended Posts

Hello Loren, there are 2 screens pre MAF 1) The metal mesh one to prevent debris going into the engine and 2) the Plastic One which to my undertsanding regulates the air into "sqaures" so that it flows evenly over the MAF.

How critical is the plastic screen, I took mine out last night as a trial and the car seems to run even better, obviously the metal mesh will remain, thoughts please ?

If you keep the filter and intake clean then I don't think they are very important. Mine have both been out since 2000.

Thks Loren extremely strangely since I removed this the car runs like a hot rod again, lets see how long it lasts, only thing I can think of is that drilling extra holes in my underside decklid was letting too much air into the airbox but not across the MAF, can only wait for CEL to reappear I guess

One week on 1.3 BAR boost all day, no CELs, feels like the "tardis" again (so fast its Time Travel) all very strange
