the maf was moved to after the filter????????hows this possible. if that is even possible ill bet my right thumb thats your problem....unmetered air. but again i dont see how its possible
In all reality it isnt fast at all, it didnt ever cost 250k, and it wont blow your girls panties off. that being said i drive a ford focus

Take a picture of it to show us. it will help resolve your problem. Did you install it backwards by chance did you?

Aren't all MAFs after the filter? I can't see how one would be before the filter, they would get very dirty in a hurry.
