    You don't need one... you have a larger MAF as you have an S3..

    i seen that you had fitted a vr6 MAF after weeks of trawling lol. was this due to the size of the turbo you are running?

    I haven't got a VR6 MAF, I have an S4 MAF housing and S3 sensor... and yeah, its because of the size of the turbo ;P

    On a hybrid the std S3 MAF is more than enough
