I have a synergy 2 with the maf side switched off and with the standard bosch maf. I am considering changing to the peirburg maf and switching on the the maf side on the synergy. Although I get a fairly good performance with the present setup I think it may have gone out of spec especially on the low end torque. I have done 61K and regularly clean the maf but I am now thinking its time for a change , would the car benifit from fitting the peirburg ?

Perhaps one of the best ways to make that decision is to disconnect the MAF (Mass Air Flow Sensor) sensor and drive for a short while. If the performance improves then it is a good idea to change your MAF sensor :)

Don't leave it disconnected for very long though as you'll drink fuel like it's going out of fashion. I would suggest you'll have the information you need within say, 10 miles.

Cogito ergo sum... maybe?

Hi thanks for the reply disconnected the MAF but the acceleration and performance felt lumpy so I cleaned the MAF with switch cleaner from Malpins and the car runs much better now. I have an oil impregnated air filter which I cleaned and re-oiled several months ago but cleaned the Maf a few times after that in case of oil contamination. I suppose thats the problem with these recycleable filters and Mafs. The original bosch |Maf seems to be holding up so I don't think I'll go for the peirburg now
