After having the MAF boot fail in my last 2 ORR events, I had to find a better solution.
I talking to both Tim M. and Dave L. about this, and I decided to enlist the help of a local
firm (mainly deals with Audis) to fabricate a new MAF boot out of silicone. They quoted
me a very good price, so I told them to go ahead. I sent them one of my old MAF boots
to use as a model, and they said it'd take about 4-6 weeks. Well it arrived yesterday.
Looks great, cost half as much as expected, and it should last longer then the stock
Silicone MAF boot
Compared to stock part
Bill and I installed it today. Because it was more plyable then the stock part, it
was a lot easier to install. We also used some T-bolt clamps to hold it in place.
Hopefully it'll not blow off, and withstand the higher boost and air temps.
I know some of you have expressed interest in getting something better for the
MAF boot. I can't vouch for it's longevity, but I can attest that it fits, both in my
supercharged engine and on a stock engine. If you want more information, the
vendor was 034 Motorsport in Fremont, Ca. The cost was only $49.50 plus shipping.
I have no vested interest in this firm, but they came through big time. Here is a

Thanks Javad at 034 and Bill for helping with the install.
