Crapped out MAF?

529 Views 6 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  CK98Beeetle
I have been working on a CAI for a bit now, so far until today everything has been great. I have a K&N cone filter attached right before the MAF right now. I have almost 70K on the car and it just went out for the first time i think, my CEL came on. Would it be ok after i get the MAF replaced to continue with my CAI, i have a pipe being welded with a heatshield. Has anyone else had to replace their MAF's often after the CAI??? Like the ABD Q-Flow, and Neuspeed P-Flow for instance. Mines about the same thing.

It would seem that the MAFs die with other than stock filters. One thing that seemed to track was the over oiling of the K&N pannel filter caused a failure. A little oil at a time would migrate from the filter to the MAF, and coat the element. Then the MAF dies. The lesson is to not use too much oil.
