Yeah so you posted a question and it was awash in the torrent of massive posting that goes on, that it was lost, so much posting goes on that it takes 2 to 3 weeks before a thread will leave the first page. You thought you would throw away a perfectly good MAF sensor, despite the Motorcraft part number was the same.
You may have been here longer than I, but it is already apparent that you won't be here much longer.
Also, don't judge someone by their appearance on a forum. I met someone off another forum, his screen name was speedracer, and yes he didn't use proper grammar on the internets (serious business), he claimed he was an electronics technician at Pleasurecraft, and I needed help sorting out wiring on a DBW throttle body that came off another vehicle. He showed up in his GT (And I am not talking Mustang), incredibly intelligent off the internet and we got it all sorted out. Again, the moral of this story is, don't judge someone by their internet appearance, not is all as it appears, especially when they act like an internet tough guy.
What am I trying to cover up? Yeah I overtightened it but so what. People make mistakes. I didn't want it falling off when I'm driving. And the part number may have been the same but they have a secondary calibration code on them. That could mean different output voltage or a different temp that the hot wire runs at. Maybe even the housing is a little different. Many people like me just go onto the main page to look at threads. So after a few new threads or thread bumps other threads don't show up. Understood?
I like how when someone gets some slight criticism and they pull out the internet tough guy card. Where have I been tough guy? Did I make threats? You have no business being on a forum if you can't handle a little criticism.
You are correct when you say I won't be here much longer but it will be my choice. I'm selling my truck soon for a better vehicle.
Lastly I can think how I want to think. Last time I check my thoughts were my own. So if I see that one guy is claiming to be something but he can't spell simple words then I'm going to thinks its a lie. Take your own advise and don't judge a book by its cover. A little criticism from me makes me an internet tough guy? Hardly.
