Hahahaha.. silly mouse.. I"m happy and enjoying my MAF screen off.. those would prbably rip to shreds and fall in the intake and restrictive too as mentioned. Just giving my 2 cents before tax on something close to a High flow MAF screen being just the stock screen ( held firmly in place somehow ) that just covers in front of the MAF sensor.. whether someone decides to do it or not.. not my problem.. if it succeeds.. bonus.. I"m just happy with mine off and no problems

I would think the reason behind the MAF screen being so dense is due to worries about larger objects getting into the intake, but there shouldnt be anything getting past your filter anyway.

I think a less dense screen would kill turbulence and allow a greater flow.

The purpose of the MAF screen is to provide a smooth air flow over the MAF sensor. It'* dense (or thick) so that it can straighten out the air. Stopping objects would be just a side benefit, not it'* purpose. If you've got "objects" getting past your air filter, you're in big trouble.

Take it off, baby!
