I finally got around to de-screening the MAF on my 96 BBB. I was rewarded with a CEL when I restarted the engine. I disconnected the negative battery terminal for a couple hours hoping it would re-set. It does not appear that this has worked. I thought I read once that it would take the OBD II a couple days of driving to notice the increased flow and the CEL would go out. Is this wrong or do I likely have an air leak in my re-connections. I have the Gen II FIPK from K&N installed for four years now with never a CEL. Any advice?? thanks chydog :confused:

I think the connection to MAF is not correct or poss "air leak", should be no CEL at all, recheck connections, vaccum hookups, wires, etc.,... :D :cool:

After I descreened my MAF I ran .8 slower than before. 15.6 @ 88 mph. Turns out I put the damn thing on backwards like KWbaraka said. So sh!t does happen :confused:

Thanks all, a little embarrassment. MAF was put in properly however I must have had a leak in the connections. Re-aasembled and CEL is gone. Haste makes waste 'eh. Next time i'll double check before i use my lifelines. Thanx chydog

I de-screened my MAF, no lights. Low speed stumble, surging, not happy. Put the screen back on and everything smoothed out. Don't go to the track so I don't know the difference there. But street driveability is much better for me with the screen in place. Has anyone else had similar experiences?

Don't muck around with precision measuring devices.

AFAIK removing the screen if your intake has bends (like the stock system or an FIPK) may cause issues.... while using a straight-into-the-TB intake like a RAISS or SSRI allows for problem-free screen removal.
