Toss the MAF/AFM/brick/air restrictor away and use this: http://www.diyautotune.com/catalog/g...tor-p-116.html

You'll need a standalone such as AEM or MS to utilize that in conjunction with a MAP sensor.

From my understanding, air is either metered through a MAF or a AIT and MAP in conjunction.

An ECU necessitates both an AIT and MAP in the latter case.

Though this is not a cheaper alternative, it certainly is the most effective.

I would suggest putting the MAFmeter before the turbo. I was running mine right before the intercooler and I went through 2 before I put it back to the preturbo location. My car now runs so much better than it did. My engine bay looks like ***** with that nasty thing in there again but I prefer my daily to actually run decent... I think the heated air from the turbo may have something to do with the 2 previous ones being ruined AND the pressure quickly pops off the plastic cover making the internals suceptable to contamination and the car further running like ***...

I had a pvc pipe setup for a while on the cold side and it worked fine as long as I used it (it was temporary). other than popping IC pipes often even at only 6psi.

Either way, LOL at it close to the manifold. Seriously I would not trust that right off the hot side like that.

Hell if you're going to do that, use the stock accordion piece with zip ties in it to help it stop expanding under boost. Honestly though, although any setup with the stock crossover tube is a little easier, eliminate it if you can, you can't clamp it very tight and it's more likely to blow off under boost.

There is an excess of pipes and couplers there, although I'm not sure what the most efficient version would be.

If you want a 90* intake elbow, I have one I could sell for like, $15 shipped. It's like your AFM filter adapter, but it immediately takes a 90* downward turn. It allowed me to go straight from my turbo, to the AFM, to a filter behind the radiator. Not the best placement, but it wasn't sitting on top of the fender either. PM me if interested.

You can see it in this picture. Like I said, an immediate 90*. Or build one yourself.
