Toyota maf in my rx8?!

I recently had my maf replaced and I just noticed they put in a Toyota maf. It says Toyota on it. I was wondering if I should be concerned. I have some hesitation while accelerating sometimes after the engine has ran a while. I think I have a vacuum leak but not sure.

Go back to wherever you had your maf replaced. Post a picture of it on here just in case they try to give you any bs.

stop being a noob, it's the same part.

Not to mention, ur issue has nothing to do with MAF, learn how close loop works.

nycgps doesn't exactly mince words lol

it does seem like the same par though..... A lot of japanese manufacturers have the same underlying suppliers for out-of-house parts like that (MAF, O2 sensors, etc)

Odds are it's actually made by Mitsubishi. A ton of components like that are manufactured by them and are used in all different types of makes and models.
