There are number of guys with grand prixs that removed the screen to gain more flow at WOT. Some of them experienced poor idle performance and slight off-stumbles. The guys with power Tuners and HP Tuners could fiddle with the MAF table in this area and make it better. Others didn't care and just lived with it. I found on my '04 GTP that the very small increase in max flow and the very small HP gain were easily overshadowed by other changes and, in my mind, not worth the hassle.
I'm an engineer and we use MAFs in several non-automotive related products. If you screw with the flow pattern of the air moving across the element, you will go through flow rates that are pretty close and other that are not. It makes getting accurate measurements across the intended flow range pretty difficult if not impossible.
