New Cone Intake filter no Place for MAF sensor

So heres my question- To tide me over until i buy a full intake system I purchased a highflow cone air intake filter.
Hooks up nice to the factory intake tube but of course there is no place for the MAF sensor which of course will allow the car to start but to then die.
So is there anyother place to connect the MAF too? or should I just not use this air filter

Jesus..........if you can't solve this riddle on your own you really should not be modding your car with out supervision. Put the stock intake back on..........

leaving the MAF plugged in will do just what you said. unplugging the MAF will allow the car to turn on, drive and run pretty much ok except the check engine light and being in limp mode. i wouldnt suggest doing this! its just a quick fix like if your FMIC pipping blows off and you need your car to move with no tools. put the stock one back on!

Unless you have that 2.0 modded out hard, aka bigger turbo etc, get a real CAI or short ram, but if you're not pushing out heavy dyno numbers stick with stock airbox, get a drop in K&N pannel filter, DONT RISK IT!!! That sounds shady as &^%$!!!!Cry!
