That's probably a little over the top. :D I think the kits that have been sold here and there have been more like 8 or 9 feet, so if you were to go with a roll of 5 meters (that's what I bought, at least), you should be fine.

We are still getting used to these new meter units - so we tend to order more so we won't run short. Have you heard about them in Norway yet?

We kind of enjoy logic to our unit systems over here, so yeah. :lol: I'm sure it's fun to measure things when there's 12 inches to a foot, then 7/8ths of a lanyard to a cup, and then 45 cups to a cubic hexagonal pound per 3 square feet, and so on, but I'll never get the hang of the imperial system. I like it when there's 1000 of these in that, then 100 of that in them, and then 10 of them in 1 of theses. :lol:

New MAF on order. I am only seeing 4-5 lines to replace, is this correct? Silicone or rubber? I went to buy 4 mm rubber and it seemed huge compared to what is on there. Am I on the right track?

Went through and checked all hoses and everything seemed fine. Pulled the p0102 and replace the maf. Swapped a Bosch for a Bosch. So far, so good. This was the first part that I replaced back in March. What are the chances that the problem was a faulty MAF to begin with and I just chased the problem back to square 1? Could there be something larger at play that is causing the MAF to fail?

Ive read some reports of people getting a string of bad MAFs but I never really understood cause. Otherwise, they seem to be reliable if they are true blue Bosch - (there is a lot of counterfeiting in these parts)

The MAF is still holding up and no issues have come up. I am just beside myself that I chased the problem around and replaced so many other things, when it was the very first part I exchanged.
