I'll likely epoxy it, then either try it again or sell it. The other option would be to just cut up the tube part and use it to connect to the factory air box. That would eliminate the big resonator that says nissan on it, but keep a system of mounting the maf that I trust.

yeah, i'm sure that "leak" is what is throwing your codes.
not a lot to go wrong there otherwise.

I am with J. Last time I had a code from the MAF that I thought was an issue with a leak in my intake turned out to be a bad MAF sensor. New one resolved the issue. I don't believe small intake leaks cause issues like they do with O2 sensors on the exhaust side.

Right, but I did change the sensor, In fact I changed it twice in one week because I thought they gave me a bum part. I also Sourced a dryflow air filter. Now with the same sensor and the stock intake there are no codes.

I'm saying that the air leak is the cause.
MAF takes miniscule measurements...a gap
would likely be enough to fuck it up.
