MAF Swapover

Got my hands on a AU XR8 MAF. I swapped my electronics to the AU MAF and bolted it on. Now few questions.

The AU MAF didnt have a fly screen mesh like my stock 55mm one does. Should i use this mesh off the old one or just leave it alone?

Also, Is it best to reset the ECU after this mod?

Im planning on having the car dynoed in the next couple of weeks to check A/F ratios are good. Apart from this car appears to be running strong and did notice an increase within mid range.

Re: MAF Swapover

You may as well reset it, the EEC will re-learn over 1-200km anyway, resetting it just quickens the process up. Don't worry about the screen it is there just in case any large bits go through the aircleaner which is very unlikely anyway.

Yeah thought that too. I suppose the Air filter is a KN and has the mesh surrounded anyways.
