UPDATE: If I pressurize the pump with 10psi of compressed air, it spews diesel bubbles from the interface shown below in yellow. I'm preeettttty sure it shouldn't do this, lol.

I just went ahead a bit the bullet, have a MAF sensor coming to me via Amazon prime. If it doesn't fix it I can just return it with no hassle.

I visually checked them and even pulled a few off to check the ends, and everything looked fine. I replace my vacuum lines pretty religiously. I also checked by shutting off the car and then after a bit of time, pulled the line off the vacuum ressy and it had held its vacuum in there so I'm...
With the ignition on but the car off, I see 1275.
When I turn the engine on and let it idle, this drops to either 5 or 10.
If I rev the engine it drops to 0mg/stroke.
If I drive the car and rev past some RPM (maybe 3k?) then it defaults to 550mg/stroke and goes from 25 horsepower to 50...
I've got a co-worker with a Jetta wagon TDI (ALH) and I'm going to try to convince him to let me borrow his MAF to see if it works in my car before I go dropping $115+ on a new one.
I can also test continuity between MAF pin #3 and chassis ground on his car and see if that should be or not...
