Look at it like this, if theres even the slightest chance that a removed MAF screen could damage your ride, why risk it? You said you got that info from ZZP, well let me ask you, is ZZP gonna pay to repair your MAF, or even more, are they gonna rebuild your engine when it craps out from running way lean for a long time? Or will they simply just be there ready to fill your order when its time to order new parts?lol Something to think about. The whole MAF screen mod has been a long debated issue and there really hasnt been any definitive evidence in either direction, but with the mods you have the hp gains would be minimal at best if there are any at all. Just some food for thought.
