    These are China made. I bought one some time ago at around $30 (same Bulgarian seller) and bench tested it - the voltage output readings were way out compared with the genuine Bosch. And the electronics inside are a joke.

    Good to know, thanks! Makes me feel bad for the folks who already bought them.

    I'll put the new MAFs in and the new IAC's in and then save the originals as spares. I searched a long time for the IAC actually longer than I for for the new ABS pump. Mine are fine, actually very clean and functional but spares are good.

    Found them here.

    They have Mondial, Testarosa,308 injectors set out there.

    Bosch never issued a series of refurbished/remanufactured 0 280 212 018 MAFs so the ones you got should be original and probably new. I don't think they are used since they came in original production Bosch boxes.

    Otherwise, the Bosch factory remanufactured (exchange series) MAFs were assigned different Bosch numbers. For example, the original MAF 0 280 212 016 has new number 0 986 280 101, on a special sticker, if reman, with the original number written in small characters below it:

    The reman MAFs also come in different boxes:

    Interesting, yep the boxes were sealed with the paper Bosch tape and nothing else, definitely not opend and resealed and the MAF's were in old heavy brown wax paper paper. But there was no blue cap for the resistor adjustment, wonder of Ferrari put them in after setting it to what ever they did when they tuned the banks.

    I checked the MAFs closely, the plastic is unused, no one has ever slid a boot on either end or slid a connector boot on to the pins or ever never stuck a screw driver in the pot. No marks at all anywhere. The pins perhaps were bench tested then may have discolored after 25 years sitting in a warehouse in a cold climate. They came from Finland.

    The pot caps are not supplied by Bosch. The blue ones are Ferrari p/n 140190 (available).

    OK it turns out that those slightly worn pins turned out to be grey corrosion prevention compound on the pins. Miroljub is correct they are new. I hated to open the boxes but I had to verify...

    That was a very lucky find. These were also used on Saab 9000 2.0 Turbo 1990-1992 but are long NLA from Saab. I managed to get one a few years back in the same box as yours.

    So, you now have a treasure worth 2 x GBP 2,791.26 (price per piece at Eurospares but appear NLA).

    Correct I looked for the SAAB ones hoping GM dealers would have them stuck away but no luck, I thought for SURE the SAAB one is what I would find. I know they had 2 different Saab ones one worked one did not, the part numbers are out here for others to fins of they need them.

    That is $3600 for two, wow... I paid $450-$500 a piece for the Ferrari part number. I'll set 383 ohms and pop new pot caps in to prevent water intrusion.
