ADD: Did anyone mintion a AMF/MAF swap any increase? I believe that if BMWs were equipped with the same intake design as the one on Supra's with a shield there would be a slightly noticable increase in power (minus the location because of water, snow, sleet, ice, etc.).
There was a long discussion about that MAF, it would seem it's a huge restriction on the M42 motor. A lot of people were talking about having custom ones made.
