hmmm a bit odd there seems like the air to fuel mix isnt correct if the engine is losing HP rather then gaining performce as it should be with a turbo and EGR valve and airflow meter being placed in unless if not mistaking the airflow meter isnt reading the air flow correctly as it should
You MUST have the air flow meter installed on your vehicle. The car will not run if you remove it. The Air Flow Meter measures the amount of air coming into the engine, and also the air temperature. This information is sent to the fuel injection computer, to determine the proper fuel to be injected. In reality, cars with "air-flow meters" do not really "benefit" from a cold air intake, due to the inherent restriction that the air flow meter causes, as it measures the air.
In short, I would not install the intake, you won't see much benefit. The graciousness of a FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated..
The mass air flow meter should only be changed after a suitably skilled diagnostician has checked the output on an oscilloscope and declared it to be faulty. Fault codes relating to this component can be generated by EGR valve problems or air intake leaks. If your Airflow meter is really faulty I would expect your Malfunction Indicator Light to be on. If you can get to Hants I could check it out for you. Hope this helps.
That's not going to work. You can't install a air flow meter into a Pulsar from a Q45. Totally different animals. Air flow meters are car specific. I don't think its gonna work, but good luck with that.
