GS Intake question?

So I bought the GS intake and when I installed it there were two bolts that I assume are to hold the mass airflow sensor in place to the supplied heat shield, the question is if there is supposed to be something supplied with the kit to hold the maf inplace? I called GS and was told that i was supposed to use something off the stock airbox.....but i see nothing. So now I have this annoying rattle of my maf against the heatshield. Advice?
Thanks
Tristan

did you use the round-ish bracket that fits on the opposite site of the maf from the heat shield? i think there are two holes for those bolts on diagonal corners.

The bracket is a black metal plate.


It's probably stuck to the airbox or something.

It's a black metal plate with tabs on 2 ends, and a big hole in the middle of it.


Did you lose it somewhere?

You need to get one of those plates ASAP.


MAF's are sensitive to vibration.
