you ARE NOT listening to reason, when you install the MAF in anything but the stock airbox configuration all you are doing is making the computer see LESS air which means LESS fuel... less fuel is GREAT if it's tuned out with a wideband 02 and you know your Air/Fuel ratio is within safe specs, however just slapping on a CAI (*** DO THEY CALL IT A CAI WHEN IT'S AIR THATS GOING TO GET COMPRESSED(HOT) ANYWAY GAY)....
summary: removing fuel adds power, but possibly at the cost of removing the engine soon for that precious 10hp, there's lots of ways to add reliable power, this isn't one without an immediate tune which in some cases give minute gains over the stock airbox
things like this give good reason to get raped at the dealer for a bran new ride versus a used abused i wanted to go faster so i cranked everything up not knowing what i was going ghetto blaster
