Made my engine run a lot better becuase of the extra air flow. Id say a good 3-5hp gain.

Does anyone have a MAF screen that they are not using. I destroyed mine in its removal, but I want to put it back in.

It actually would not add that much horsepower because it causes the air to be turbulent going into the throttle body. It does give much better airflow and adds a little bit of power but definitley not that much. I don't see how you broke the maf screen Buddha because there is a small ring kinda like a piston ring holding it into the groove. But if you want I might be able to hook you up.

I've got a Series I & Series II here! I could try mailing it to you if you wish? Just let me know by email if you're interested & which one you need! I've got no intentions of ever putting on either back on again.

If they existed I would be interested in a higher flowing MAF screen, larger holes or thinner material perhaps. I think I will keep my on for a while, the turbulence from it being off wouldnt be worth it because my intake pipe isnt entirely smooth.

I could goto the junk yard and get you like 20 MAF screens right now if you want...I mean the bonne isnt the only car with a 3800 so they arent uncommon to find. Rivi,PA,Cent,88,Camaro,etc. Goto the junk yard look for 2 mins and find one

Hee hee.. not a bad idea.. I think the closest thing to a high flow MAF screann would be just a MAF screen in front of the MAF sensor ONLY and leave the rest open.

Well if all you two want is screening material, then go to Home Depot & get some window screen material then!
