I understand that the problem most people had was because of "over-tightening", but... come on. In my book, if more than 5 people "over-tighten" things and broke them, it is maybe because the "things" should be more robust.
You should be good then! Only 3 people have broken the MAF housing due to over-tightening the filter so far, not 5 or more. Or, at least that's what has been documented on this site.

Of course whether you buy it is up to you. I check mine, but I don't have to. It has never come loose in the 3000 miles or so that I've put on it since I installed the intake.
