    Hi guys got myself a universal induction kit at weekend went to fit it and noticed in order to fit it i needd to remove the part whwere the maf sensor connects in the tube part so i done this and it ran fine but no cruise control so thought if i plug the maf sensor bk in and leave it taped or tied to the airbox it would work i was wrong so i ended up havin to remove the induction kit and now well annoyed bcos i loved the noise but i need my cruise control. and its also prob not good for engine to run without maf sensor.

    Any one got any suggestions its a 330ci m sport 2004 cheers

    Why don't you get a induction system that is tailored to your car?

    Then this will include the fitment for the maf, rather than the uni kit. Thus problem solved

    Much better in my opinion .

    I'm afraid a filter is not just a filter, some cheap ones will either do very little filtering and allow all sorts into the engine, others will cause lack of air and other oiled ones will coat the maf with oily deposits.
    Don't forget you have a great car not a beaten up old fiesta so it's worth paying that bit more for the love of your engine.

    bite the bullet and get a proper induction kit with a heat shield ( a must!) picked a brand new k and n gen 2 for my 323i on ebay last wekk for £70 (usually 170 so bargain!!)
    one other tip get some induction piping as well and fit it so it blasts more cold air into the kandn. for the sake of a cople of quid it gives you much better performance!
