Did yoiu fit your car with one of those K&N filters? I have seen many on this forum boasting about them.

Did you reset the system after replacing the MAF by removing the neg battery lead for 15 minutes? If not now is a good time to do it - even if you did it won't hurt to try again.

Brief Update -
Figuring it's probably my Frankenstein MAF (see my note above), I saw no reason not to take it apart again to look for anything suspicious (I'm already looking at buying a new one, right?).* I found a tiny piece of lint or something inside the pitot, which I carefully removed with a scrunched-up Q-tip.* Upon re-assembly, I put an oh-so-thin layer of Permatex Ultra Black (hi-temp RTV) on the top mounting surface of the housing (in case any air was leaking past that internal O-ring), between the sensor elex itself and the plastic housing.*
I think this is my best shot.* I'll also reset everything by doing the negative battery terminal disconnect for 15 minutes tonight as well.* Past that, who knows?* Also, I know that it takes awhile after reset for the code to re-appear (about 25 minutes of driving), so if it's going to re-appear, it will likely do so on my way home from work tomorrow night.
I'll keep you posted, (I was hoping you (Bill & Beelz) would respond, thanks!).**
PS - I think I can get that Bosch MAF at "Atlantic British" parts for $263 + $10 Shipping, as sold for a Land Rover (same part).* The next best I saw was All-OEM at $284 with free shipping.* Everyone else is over $300, and my dealer* is priced at $451!!
