Once I have had it fitted I will let you know.
Unless you know what you are doing and have the necessary tools to uninstall your existing Madza Air Flow unit then pay a few quid and get a mechanic to do it for you.
If you are still determined to do it yourself (how difficult can it be - you ask) then beware and don't make the same (costly) mistake I made.
Very first step: Unplug the Air Flow Meter plug. So what I did was unscrew the two screws either side of the plug snf gently pull it out. Disasterous! I had inadvertently disconnected and broken 8 or so spade conectors. In fact what I should have done to unplus the AFM was to have released the metal clip which circles the plug itself.
I tried to connect the spade connections that I could see back in place, but now I could not even start my car. £50 tow to the local garage so they can A) Fix the AFM (if that's possible) and B) Install the filter charger properly!
It would have been nice of K&N to have included this gem of advise in their instructions rather than telling the installer to simply "remove the AFM connection".
Once it comes back from the garage I'll let you know what difference it makes to the performance.
