    Hi Jay,

    You need to do a scan to find out what error codes are present. If you do not have VAGCOM, check the link below to see if any members on here can perform a scan for you.

    The ignition module is attached onto the airbox, sounds to me like you need a new one, looks like this > http://img.auctiva.com/imgdata/4/4/1...2767796_tp.jpg

    No it doesnt need to be attached to the airbox if you have an induction kit.

    Instead of letting it hang there knock up a bracket so you can bolt it to the airbox mount on the suspenion tower in the engine bay. Check all the connections on it are clean and clipped in properly...if its hanging then they may have come un-done slightly.

    Buy a genuine Bosch MAF if you get one, buy pattern = buy twice.

    I agree with Tom, always go for genuine when it comes to mafs, or you'll be back on here in a few months with a similar fault if you buy a copy lol

    Sometimes the maf faults can come up when they are unpluged, coming up as signal too low, best thing to do is clear the fault, take it out for a drive and then see what faults comes up. Have you put a cone on for the induction noise?

    For the noise or performance bud? Cones do more harm than good

    A bit of both, but am thinking of running the air filter down pass the battery and behind the bumper, would that stop the maf sensor messing up again

    True but you need a fmic for the air to be cooler on intake, doesn't matter how cold the air your filter gets as soon as it hits the turbo it'll be hot lol
