    Ported/polished MAF???

    Is this a worthy upgrade, if I could find a nice stocker done right for cheap. Or is it not worth bothering with?

    You don't port and polish a MAF. You just change the ends. It is a worthless mod.

    That is done by changing the ends. The screen comes out with the stock ends. Like I said it's a worthless mod. Been there, done that.

    u are just asking for trouble porting and polishing a maf, u may screw up something and eventually would go back to stock, I took the screen out of mine and it was hard to tune and had to eventually buy another stock one. The tuner also told that messing with the maf will eventuall eat uo 3rd and 4th gear. Thats y u see ported mafs so cheap everywhere like ebay
