    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

    Join the gang mate, i've had a leak for a few months now and still can't find the bastard thing. Looks like i'm gonna have to get a pressure test done!

    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.

    There must be a local garage / Tuner with a smoke tester??
