Well there has to be some way. to replace it with a sensor or something. the only thing i have ever heard of is a piggy back system, and i have not the foggiest idea of what that is.

You can just disconnect it, it wont harm anything. However without a reading from the sensor, your computer will dump fuel into the engine, and youj'll always be running rich and lower your MilesPerGallon. So, you can just take it out if you want to, but theres no real reason to. You wont gain any performance out of it, only waste more gas. [edit] Oh, and all that extra unburned gas in your exhaust will eventually destroy your catallytic converters. Longstory short, dont do it unless u absolutely have to.

I would like to get rid of it because i am doing a turbo setup. What if i used a MAF sensor out of a newer BMW and wired it in then tuned the car via a wide band o2 and my laptop ?

Sounds okay, doesn't the turbo kit come with computer and sensors?

Well here is the the problem. I cannot find a complete kit for it. No one makes one to my knowledge so this means i have to do a complete custom setup, but with the electric fan and shroud gone as well as the AC compressor this gives me plenty of room to play with. If anyone else has any suggestions i would greatly appreciate them, or if my theory will work a verification would as well
