I removed the screens on the mass airflow tube, and holy cow! It has much much much better throttle response, and it might have picked up a few horses too- but I dont know yet.

Its easy. Its free. And gives proven results!

btw, my car is a '94 325is with an M50 motor- OBD1.

remove the screens on yours NOW!!! :thumbup: :D

This was a pretty controversial mod on DSM cars a decade ago. I don't think it was ever conclusively seen as good or bad in the end.

And in BMW circles there is always Gizmo.

Yeah, remove that screen, then contaminate or scratch or break your hot film element. Then the car won't run and you have to buy a new HFM, which is NOT cheap.

Also not having any screen can upset the fuel - air ratio sensing since the screen provides an airflow modifying function. The GC Gizmo is designed to provide the proper airflow and some (but much less than stock) hot film element protection.
