    Ford fiesta aftermarket intake

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    I am looking into fitting an aftermarket air intake on my 1.6 ford fiesta N/A. I see that there is a sensor connected to my standard air intake which i am told is called a (MAF) sensor.
    Could some one tell me what would happen if i fitted a simple intake system with out the MAF sensor as to if it would affect the car in anyway. OR would i be able to remove the MAF sensor and mount it onto the new performance intake?

    Most likely you'll get a check engine light appearing on your car since it won't idle correctly.

    Most intakes will have the proper hole to plug in the MAF sensor, why would you want to eliminate it?

    I would not remove the MAF. It has some functionalities that's why it is installed on our cars.
