Default MAF bore or whatever that is

I got another TB with the screen as I removed the screen from my other. As I look at them they have a metal whatever, probe maybe going across from end to end. Can this be removed or is it of some use. I have nevered playwith this TB setup yet nor looked at closely. The TB is what the probe in qestion is on, not the screen.

Before you click the link I'm giving you, DON'T do it. The results were not good. The TB flowed too much for the range of the OEM MAF sensor.

Besides, the bore of the TB is not the limiting factor on your car from a flow standpoint.

Like that? Yup, been done. No, I don't suggest you do it. That TB is a paperweight now. I still have it.

Has been proven on many cars here. I've done them for myself, billboost37, jr's3800, harofreak00, and BonneMeMn for testing
