What I used was mica insulators used for transistors. Mine are .0025" thick, I used four... one on each side of the MAF's metal plate at each of the two mounting holes. This insulates the MAF sensor from my AEM CAI metal pipe.

While that alone changed things, even more change occured when I put a ground between the AEM CAI tube and the fender... capturing the heat shield in the process, which heretofore was also "floating" due to insulating paint.
