Re: lumps and relays
If it's an alloy top the 4 pin MAF and the air temp sensor are separate and a dodgy air temp sensor produces very similar symptoms to a dodgy MAF. It's in a rubber hose type thing that goes between the MAF and the manifold. You can check the air temp sensor with an ohm meter- mine was quite a long way off the range shown in the manual.
If you have a plastic top engine the 2 are combined into one unit which I think has a 5 or 6 pin connector so you will have replaced it when you changed the MAF. I've swapped both in mine but the air temp sensor made more of a difference in my case. It's about 15 notes to replace.
