I read a post on this subject back when i had my F-body. They say the gain you get is very minimal, maybe 5 hp tops. You then take the chance of an object getting into your intake and possibly damaging a valve, the throttle body, or trashing the engine.
Another thing, think how cheap GM is. They spent more than just a couple of cents to have the MAF screened. Someone did some analysis work to figure out that it was cheaper to spend the 4-5 bucks more for a screened MAF times the millions of cars that it is on versus the extra warranty costs over 36,000 miles.
I'm with GTOdealer, DON"T DO IT!!!!!!!

I've read posts on other forums where the MAF screen was removed or replaced with an aftermarket one. Most cases netted nothing and many have had problems. I'd stay stock at least with the MAF. The tech guru's seem to, for the most part, agree that the stock MAF and throttle body flow plenty good up to like 5-600hp....or so I have read. :cool
Good luck.

Stick with the stock one, and btw, good luck getting the bigger throttle body to fit (unless it's a ported stock unit), the K&N doesn't accept bigger pieces..... :cheers
