For correcting flow on the MAF- it's flat, looks like a credit card sort of. There are 2 holes that the air flows through. One is near the connector, and one is on the opposite corner. The one nearest the connector is where the air flows out, and the one furthest away from the connector is where air flows in.

If that's not the problem then you need to post a thread in General Technical Chat. This particular thread should be in Duratec Performance. Moving it to Tech chat won't do you any good. People who answer threads in there don't usually answer new threads with 3 pages. Once we get a problem, we latch on to it until it's resolved, then move on.

If you want, you can mess with your buddy. Ask him how he thinks you're supposed to change the timing belt since the valve cover doesn't have a timing belt inspection cover.

Moved to Duratec Performance.

Got rid of the elbow and blue connector and intake does sit between battery and headlight, and maf can not be turned around.

also a reply on focaljet

"There should be a place for an air straightener a white grid plastic peice that fits in the end of the MAF tube, that should face down toward the filter. I don't know if that's your problem but it's worth a try."

Well if it can't be turned around, then maybe that tube was put in backwards. Did you look at the holes in the MAF as I described to see if it was turned around the right way?

If it's pointed the right way, then it is not the problem unless the wiring is damaged somehow. From what you described, it could be the TPS, you'll have to get out your multi-meter and test it to see if the resistance is correct.

Update, took it to my ford dealership, found a bad wire in a maf harness so they fixed that and replaced something else, only is throwing two more codes now, a intake runner code, there is a bad wire there, and a fuel pressure, they noticed the gas tank was dropped so they were thinking when the person put the tank up they crushed the harness.

already giving them $410 to fix the maf problem, also the maf elbow was backwards.

Here is the pic with the new hub cap on and new grey seat in -_-
