Default MAF Removal

I quite fancy dumping my MAF now that my car has run fine for the past few weeks

Currently the MS is controlling fuel only, and it has O2 input TPS input. I intend to go to Spark control soon. I've also hooked up the fuel wire from the stock ECU to the MS.

Can I just uplug it? or does it indirectly control other components?

If you use another AIT than stock you should be able to unplug it...

I think the MAF is used to for load in the OEM spark table.
You should get spark going before removing it.

is that why my topend power has gone?

doh, put it back tomorrow then!

I did briefly try to hook up the spark control, but whilst it started it ran really poorly, like it was on 2 or 3 cylinders. I've got my dwell set at 2.2ms and discharge at 0.5. I've a feeling it's running poorly cos the spark us being blown out? but i'm scared to crank up the dwell as I've got the weak coils and need the car as a daily driver!

any ideas or tips?
