Default Intake/MAF question

I just built an intake on my 99 forester and i'd like to shorten it up so i can get a little more torque and low end hp. how can i either delete or move the maf closer to the intake manifold?

you could move the MAF housing anywhere you want before the TB, but the closer it gets the more likelihood of erroneous readings. Also, changing the length of the ports/runners and size of the plenum is what changes the powerband... the intake length before the TB will only have WOT effects on powerband and they will be very very very very small.
