New MAF, DME Reflash Necessarry?

So I have replace my old MAF part no. 996.606.124.00

with a new MAF that has the part no. 996.606.125.01

The car is a MY2000 E-gas model.

Does it require a dealer DME reflash? The car seems to be running fine with the new MAF installed although I haven't taken it for a longer drive yet.


It has a GIAC flash currently, if that makes any difference.


Cheers

According to the info on Mike Focke's site, you should get a reflash if you go
from the 996.606.124.00
to the 986.606.125.01

If you originally had the 996.606.125.00 version, then a reflash isn't necessary.

Yeah that why I was asking the question because according to the new part no. I will need a reflash but the car actually runs fine.

It seems like GIAC would have the best answer for you.
