An update and a question

So, I've been really busy with work, birth of a daughter, and general life issues with the military and what not, but I am still in progress with the 318is. Current projects inclued a port and polish on the head, the gasket changes and what not that accompany that, interior work, lightening and a few other minute things. I've been getting the urge to spend more time on everything but money and the availability of parts and time have been holding me back.

The question at hand is this, when installing a turbo set up or even SC, how or what do you do with the mass airflow sensor unit? Do you just keep it in line and push the forced air through it or is there a bypass? Every attempt to run the engine without the sensor has resulted in chugging and bogged performance to the point where driving it around the block was a bad idea.

Hook it up with the knowledge!

Put it before the turbo; putting it where you're blowing boost through it could not only skew the readings, but I suspect it could really destroy it as well.

What Torque said. You may need a custom part to allow the sensor's installation before the turbo

Just a bracket to hold it and the wiring needs to be lengthened to reach the other side of the car, but overall not too bad.

ps. I'm more and more tempted to buy a turbo manifold, a cheap chinese turbo, a rising rate fpr and strap it on to my car at about 6 or 7 psi just to see if I can get a few more horses out; i'd be happy with like 30 extra hp as it would cost me ... 500 dollars. lol
