How long can you run without a MAF?

I won't have money for a while so I want to know if it should be fine to drive for a week or two.[headbang]

It looks absolutely clean nothing greasy or dusty. When it is plugged it runs like sh!t but with it off it runs like a champ.. Should I spray it anyways? Is it safe to spray without taking it out?

Off. And let it dry or dry it yourself before you put it back in. You don't want to have any moisture in their when you run it. You probably have a bad Maf and need a new one by the sound of it. Good luck.
