Mine didn't. But you will have to still have the maf sensor in the air duct and plugged in. Computer must have this info to operate properly.

No it shouldn't. I added a cold air kit with K & N filter to my Mini Cooper-S & later to my Fiat Abarth & gained 20% more hp, the performance & mpg improved too! Most kits have a hook-up for the stock mass air flow sensor. Plus they pop, hiss, & groan,so cool. Always think "more air in & more exhaust out" for more performance. An after market "cat back" exhaust system helps to, like Flow Master.
