Thread: descreening MAS

  1. #1

    Question descreening MAS

    For anyone who has ever descreened a MAS, how exactly do you do it? Does it

    even make a noticeable difference? It seems to me descreening it would be not unlike performing brain surgery being that the sensors are so freakin thin.

    i did on my grand prix. I noticed a difference but it caused an eratic idle. It iwll flow more but can cause negative effects like inaccurate air/fuel mixture with real turbulent flow. The screen straightens the airflow. I would leave it in unless you have a highly modified vehicle that needs every bit of air possible

    Agreed. The MAF screen is there for a reason, so I wouldn't remove it. Getting a good reading to the MAF sensor is a bit more important anyways.

    In retrospect that makes a lot of sense. I'm reluctant to do anything that is going to jack up my ride. I read about a few members having done it...........just curious. Thanks for the help fellas.
