Default Alpha N map/gsr carbon box ---> OEM intake

Thinking of removing my GSR airbox to sell the car OEM. I'm currently running an evolve Alpha N map. Can I run this with the OEM airbox?

You could, but why would you want to if going back to a MAF setup?

Probably cause he's selling the car and doesn't want to pay to remove the map

If he has INPA and hence WINKFP a standard flash need not cost anything

I think the point is that you can run it, but there is no reason why you wouldn't go back to a proper MAF setup if the OEM box is going back in.

I do indeed! It's been invaluable although I haven't had a chance to route the wiring to the centre console yet. I've been OK with a slightly longer wire.
