Damn, that sucks! Sorry dude, it was out of a 95 with just over 100k on it... did it behave like this since you started the motor or did it just suddenly go to shit? Stupid question but, you got the orientation the right way right? Although, even if not, that probably wouldn't throw a maf code...

Rob, if you need a maf, I've got one from a 1994 325is. Worth a try.

If run that way for a while it can cause oil to enter the intake instead of forcing it down the oil return tube. I'd check your plugs just to be sure they are clean, could be bridged with oil residue. You can clean them by soaking them in some gas and re-gaping.

LOL a 3/4" vacuum leak will do it. Glad it wasn't the maf.
