With AFM/MAF you MUST connect the opening where you currently have the filter to the intake tube or your car will run like Mierda (****). Or get an MS and VTA that bitch.

NO. Just crank up the boost to 30psi and you should be fine.

lol, my thoughts exactly.

with the etd manifold, and bell downpipe, i'm gonna tighten the wastegate a bit and shoot for 6psi this coming trackday--so hell yes, i need a bov to combat that thing called compressor surge

Do what the MSP guys do just relocate your MAF after the Bov right before your intake mani and vent it....works fine
