    I just did the hybrid swap and put in a light flywheel. Wow, the car is much quicker. Not only does it rev up faster, but at 5K+, it pulls like mad. The sound of the 3 intake and the VAF is deep and visceral even with stock exhaust.

    you got her driving already?! NIIIICE, I can't wait to do B8 crank and have the stock flywheel shaved to about 15 lbs, and do E cam swap that will be a SIIICK build with what I've got already on it!

    btw, it's not a MAF, it's a VAF or AFM.

    lots of acronyms but ya need to learn them

    MAF == Mass Air Flow and has no moving parts

    These two have a moving flapper door

    VAF == Vane Air Flow (usually followed with Meter aka VAFM)

    AFM == Air Flow Meter
