MAF replacement

I have a 2000 2.7L, 7.2 DME. So whats the consensus on the cheapest replacement MAF. Got CEL light about a month ago which read as rich limit bank 2 O2 sensor which cleared after cleaning the MAF, and yesterday I found a stored code for the MAF, so I think its on its last legs.

I've been running a $40 eBay MAF for a couple months (and for a couple thousand km's) with no issues at all! Running silky smooth.
Just make sure you cross reference the part numbers before buying.

I bought one from the vendor JD recommended here. It's been about 600 miles and its working perfect. It takes some time for the OBD to learn and adjust to the new so be patient. However they had shipped me the wrong part and replaced it promptly and all is good.

Hi San.
I have an air box with MAF laying Around.
I looks to be in exalant shape, but I do not know from which model it was removed.
Let me know what is the part number of the MAF you have.
If it's a match, come pick it up.

Thanks for the offer. I'll be going out of town for the holidays, but I'll PM you when I get back next week.
