Not really the way it's mounted, but what's around its mounting location. If you check the stock airbox, you'll see some fins around the MAFS that aren't present on any other Intake
out there except TPR (and my Intake
mod). There's a reason they're there: to maintain proper airflow through the MAFS. Without that, the air goes around the MAFS instead, throwing off readings and leading to bogging and CELs (P0171 - lean).
