I guess your turbo could be sucking enough air past the MAF to keep the
computer happy.  But TWICE now I have forgotten to re-attach the MAF to
turbo hose and have sat in the drivers seat baffled as the engine
starts, catches, and dies.  I suppose the computer could have different
behavior for a bogus MAF signal at startup versus other times, though.
I hope it does, come to think of it.
