Sooo. Honeycomb maf "screen"?

This thing.

Has anyone ever used one? The previous owner of my mach installed a K&N FIPKII. The directions stated to remove the maf screen and leave it out. I was able to fabricate it in as the car ran like crap without it. Like when coming to a stop, the rpms would freak out and bob between like 200 and 800, surly it would die if I didn't have a automatic. The screen fixed this, but I was wondering if there was something better. The honeycomb design is proven to make the airflow more uniform and even if I never feel a difference, I'm all for getting my computer the most accurate readings possible. For $30 that's a small price to pay. Especially since I can see the air being turbulent as hell with this K&N setup.

^That's what I'm saying. The only problem is I have no idea where to put it. The way my setup is, I have the filter, then a mounting bracket, then on the side opposite of the filter is the maf housing. There is like no place to put honeycomb thing before the maf where it needs to be. Unless I put it in the maf housing to the point where it will be practically touching the sensor. I'm not sure how effective it will be right there. I'll have to tear into my intake and take a look.

From what I hear, the honeycomb setup is popular with the LS crowd.

Well it looks like it is supposed to mount in intake tube? Like slide in and fit snug? If not double sided tape holds everything lol

^This is true regarding the tape. Some say it can be welded in. I'll figure something out. And if I by chance get 104938420 RWHP from this I'll be sure to post a write-up on how and where I put it. I'm thinking maybe some gasket maker to give it some grip on the intake "walls", might be a bad idea since some of the maker might break off and get sucked into my intake. It looks like it was more designed for CAIs. I literally have nothing between the filter and the maf other than the mounting bracket that has a hole in it for the airflow. Some bolts go from the maf, through the bracket, and into a metal thing that fits in the opening of the filter. It's going to take all the ghetto-ingenuity I can muster. Busting out the duct tape, double sided scotch tape, and the WD40.

I've used that before on a subaru with good results. You can just shove it in right in front of the maf sensor and it will stay put.

Haha. I do actually thing a maf screen for straightening air before entering the maf is helpful for driveability. No power added. Lots of stock mafs have these.

Not quite the same thing. The honeycomb should certainly settle airflow if its turbulent, the Tornado is makin more turbulent air flow...

All maf screens, inserts and misc air flow straighteners should ALWAYS be mounted directly in front of the maf. If you mount it way upstream of the maf it wont do any good at all.

Honestly the whole honeycomb is not something i will run. They are extremely restrictive when compared to a maf screen and are a bandaid for an improperly located maf.

Jegs brand. I'm venting to atmosphere now so I guess it doesn't really do its job anymore.

I had a catch can I purchased, and it did not catch anything. I ended up making one with an ebay catch can (like $30). I used this guy's method:

DIY Oil Catch Can - VW GTI MKVI Forum / VW Golf R Forum / VW Golf MKVI Forum / VW GTI Forum - Golfmk6.com

The stainless steel mesh can be bought at Home Depot in the house cleaning section (pot scrubbers). My catch can now works very well.

Need even room after the bend for the airflow to even out too.
