Default People with stock air boxes and MAF screen removed

Go out to your car and put it back in and leave it.

you don't believe me, go wind out 1st gear, stop and put the screen back in, then wind out 1st gear again. not much difference till you hit around 4000 RPM, after that the difference is night and day, so leave it in people

you might not notice it because you have been living with it for so long, i know i didn't think anything was wrong. i just heard a good arguement for leaving it be so i went and put it back, and then my car was faster. btw, welcome night shift

Yep, me and the Aviator are the night shift.

And I'll try putting the screen back in once I get the pliers for the snap ring. I think I made up new cuss words trying to put the snap ring back in with the Fuel Pressure Regulator using just a pair of screwdrivers.

you shouldn't need the pliers for the snap ring, just throw the screen back in, you can probally leave out the ring i know i did

We pulled the MAF screen out of the SSEi a while ago, and didn't notice a reduction in power, if anything there was a slight increase, but I can't say that for sure. I have heard good and bad things about removing it, all I know is both of our L67'* have it removed and they both run damn good, one just runs a little better than the other.
