With the K&N FIPK2, the MAF is just inches after the air filter, which is why the air had no time to stabilize before hitting the MAF
The screen somehow controls the incoming rush of air - and there is no more bucking!!
Never would have thought that the little screen would make such a difference
I've got news for ya!

The screen doesn't do anything, except act as a failsafe if teh aircleaner isn't installed properly.

Your MAF was probably not perfectly level, which can give you incorrect readings . ..

Woe to him who builds his palace by unrighteousness,his upper rooms by injustice,making his countrymen work for nothing...Does it make you a king to have more and more cedar?Did not your father have food and drink?He did what was right and just,so all went well with him. He defended the cause of the poor and needy,and so all went well...But your eyes and your heart are set only on dishonest gain,on shedding innocent blood and on oppression and extortion. Jer 22:13, 15-17
