    I de-restricted my MAF sensor and

    I de-restricted my MAF sensor and mid-top end is miles better car pulls like a train now and has a faster top speed.

    Unfortunalty when idoling its complete shit revs jump about all over exhauste pops almost stalls the engine

    im confused just to as how this sensor can make such a big impact.

    The restriction to airflow on this sensor is pritty big which explanes why you get more power, but why is my idol so shit?

    This could do with a better explanation as to what you are referring to and exactly what has been done to the MAF sensor.

    Gparker, fairplay to you and all.... However I believe people have commented on this before... You shouldn't want to be removing that mesh from the AFM... It is there to protect any small particles getting sucked into the intake... All being well nothing sinster will happen, but you could be putting your car at risk especially if something harsh gets sucked in...

    I think that square mesh smooths the airflow over the sensor wire/film for accurate readings, so taking it out messes up the readings a bit which gives you crap idle

    From what I've read the mesh is there to smooth and straighten the airflow over the sensors. and taking it out would cause idling problems.

    After putting the plastic inert back in idles fine, you guys are right. Just to give you an idea it must restrict the airflow quite a bit because without it in the car feels much quicker.
