04 Focus Intake disaster!!

Hey i bought an intake for my girlfriends 04 Focus zts, intake just came with a pipe and a outlet for the vacuum, so i drove it around for about 10 miles, all a sudden 50% power loss, and if you floor it, it wont move at all, like my foot isnt even on the gas, i looked around the intake , and found there was a small connector at the bottom of the stock piping, i went around and no one can get a complete intake for this car, anyone have any ideas how i can hook up a custom intake and make the engine run fine?, is there anyway to bypass this sensor?, or is there a way to connect it to my custom intake?, please let me know asap , i was thinkin of gettin that piece of pipe with the sensor outlet part on it, and just cutting the intake inhalf, and puttin that pipe in the middle so it will read the air comming through, if anyone has any other suggestions let me know, thank you

ok, i'm guessing what you are saying is that the intake you got has no place for the MAFS to hook up?? yeah... that's kinda needed.

Thats what it sounds like to me too. Does it not seem to stay at a constant idle when its cranked? But yea I would say that it would be the maf.
