Question How R u guys mounting those stupid AFMs ?

I'm running on the stock ECU again and so needed to mount the stupid AFM to the Greedy turbo inlet ....

How and why are those of you using an AFM mounting plumbing it etc ?

I looked at some pics on Google images and it seems a lot of people run a long pipe to the engine bay corner.

I'm looking for simple and hopefully not too much hot air getting pulled in.

Thanks.

Thumbs up

Great work!!!

Different than my set up.

Found these in Google Images - lots of ideas but I have to correctly size what I need to move the AFM out of the way...

No problem

Had to put the intake "plumbing" project on hold to chase an idle problem. Seems like some of the old bits needed to run the stock ECU got lazy on me .
