i kinda have the same issue. My flow used to max out at 220gs with Modx...but I had a P0101 error. This happened only once where I cleaned the maf and refitted. I now struggle to get over the 210gs. No boost leak and sensor is clean. Been like this ever since I had the error.

turns out that even though I thought I had put the maf back at the correct angle ( 4 o clock)...it was not so correct.
The MAF is extremely sensitive. After some logging and adjusting positioning - my flow rate is back to where is was before :)

also worthwhile making sure the MAF is clean.

Thanks for all the help guys
Think i found the issue, removed the pipes on Saturday and noticed that the powder coating inside the pipe is peeling off and clogging the filter around the MAF
It was quiet dirty so definitely seems to be the cause...

The supplier has agreed to rectify the issue so will post feedback as we go through the process, thumbs up to them :)

Really happy with my 227km exit, just need to get it under 14 sec now as I know the car has the potential to do so

@ Josh will it be safe to say your car flows at least 20gm/s more because you at the coast?
What position is your maf at now bud?

I noticed with my induction kit it sits at 4 o clock but now with the stock kit back on the maf sits at almost 1 o clock...
400m - 14.53 @ 158km/h @ Dragwars 2011 (Dreamscience Race+ only)
1km - 227km/h @ TeamST ODI July 2014 (A bit more than Dreamscience Race+)

who is the supplier and why is there power coating inside that pipe? Silly if you ask me. It gets damn hot in there and that is asking for trouble

Doesn't the powder coating help prevent the heat from causing damage but anyway, no one asked you.

If I think it's the same supplier then I know it's just an overspray and the complete unit is not powder coated on the inside of the pipe. It's just a simple bad powder coating job.

And no, powder coating the inside of a pipe helps nothing with preventing heat.

Buy you're right. Nobody asked me. I still know though
