Mass Air Flow Sensor?

I dont have a Mass Air Flow Sensor is it worth putting on since i am soon getting a new intake? The plug is there, is it as simple as plug and play?

Did someone remove it. Or do you just have a IAT instead? I think the 03/04's don't have a maf...

Simply removing it would produce a DTC, and a 'check engine' light.

Mine is an 04' and has a MAF, but the intake I bought had an insert for it

I thought there is a year that doesn't have a MAF, my intake came with a MAF hole cover in case you just had an IAT...

I ran mine for quite a while without it being plugged in. No codes what-so-ever. Went ahead and plugged it in just to see if anything would change and there was zero difference.

Re: Mass Air Flow Sensor?

There was a series of either late '04 or early '05 that they did without the MAF, I think early '05 when they used the EBP sensor again. My '03 throws a CEL if its unplugged because it uses the inferred EBP strategy and requires the MAF.
