    New MAF but still low g/s in vcds...

    Following on from sandips logging session this week, I've put a new bosch MAF in and I'm still getting slightly low readings (154g/s) following a full throttle 3rd gear run. Anyone had this before?

    First port of call I'd check would be:

    1) check for boost leaks in hoses (even the slightest cut from an over-tightened jubilee clip can cause this). Check all hoses around / under DV etc.
    2) Check DV - does it seem OK (holding boost etc.)

    When was it last serviced (when was air filter last cleaned)?

    Serviced last month, air filter good. Dv is not a standard one (but is a recirculating one). Have leak tested it recently and only found one leak which is now fixed

    some of you guys need to get to Bills or similar for a smoke test/diag. I am sure they could identifty leaks etc with the tester.

    Shirley this is an electronic issue? MAF just measures air going in at entry of system not at throttle body.
