So typically if they're worn, are they re-ground or tossed ?
Try to learn life's bad lessons vicariously through others.

True, the MAF changed for 95 and up, but if the car has > 200k the MAF has probably been replaced. Thus, if it looks somewhat newish, and if the car has been there for a while and might have an appointment with the crusher soon, might as well grab the MAF—somebody here might need it.

really, it changed for 95? Because I have swapped the MAF between my 94 and 96, both with the B5234 Turbo, and I noticed no difference. I did that during troubleshooting my 94 and ran that way for a few months.

We are crossing both model years and regional markets in that MAF compatability so we will quickly compare American apples to European Eggplant
