:bsflag::bigeek3:

Are you SERIOUS? That "plastic ring pipe peice with the wire attach to it" is your MAF sensor. And YES, you need it. LOL, I guess you can add this to your "Confessions...." thread about the noob things you've done.

Don't feel too bad, though. zhox did the same thing with his car and he threw away the MAF sensor and drove around without it for more than a year. LOL

Put that piece back on and reconnect the wire.

yea, a puddle wouldnt reach a sri. its probably casue its a cheap ebay intake and they make it out of plasitc so all the debris and plastic chunks from the inside got sucked into your engine. FULL OF WIN!
