Default For those who've deleted the MAF and are still N/A

I'm going to be getting MSPNP within the next couple months and i'll be trying it N/A before I go turbo so I can get used to tuning, etc. When deleting the MAF is it better to stick a filter in it's place and leave the stock crossover tube, or do some kind of pipe and filter setup on the intake side of the bay? Does it make a difference?

Good question.

I should be installing mine in about a week or so...I haven't though about that to much

I don't think it will really matter as long as you have the air bypass tube thing for idling hooked up, I think you can run anything.

if you stick the filter on the intake side and therefor shorten the intake tract you are gonna lose torque down low.

I put a hole in my crossover tube and kept everything in place for the worst case scenario.
