Euro MAF conversion

I have a 328i coupe.
Have done the M50 Manifold conversion, works well.
Have removed the traction control and replaced with a samco elbow from Bimmer world, very nice.
Have lost the standard airbox and replaced with COSMOS racing 3.5" cold air intake. works well
and have fitted M3 extractors and 24lb injectors.

Had a dyno tune and am making 135kw at the rear wheels.

thats the good bit

the problem is i have fitted a 3.5" Bosch MAF, in place if the 3" Siemes MAF.
After modifying the socket on the MAF the standard plug fits.
But i continue to get MAF erros on the DME when i check with code reader.
I am worried that the ECU wont be working properly if the MAF is not functioning correctly.
Has anyone sucessfuly done a euro MAF swap?

i would like to know what i can do to ensure im running 14.7 AFR

thanks

My first thought is there's a basic compatibility issue with the MAF and ECU.

you know to Use the 3.5 MAF you have to get different software right? Or else you'll get all kinds of errors.......

I am thinking the "basic combatability issue between the MAF and the ECU " is my problem.
I have had the ECU totally remapped on a dyno, so dont think its a software issue.

The real question is can you use a Bosch MAF with a siemens ecu?
i can swap the wires around if need be, if the signal could be accepted by the ecu.

Too much power????
