AIrRaid MAF Sensor question

Ok so i bought a used AirRaid CAI: Airaid Mustang Cold Air Intake - SynthaMax Dry Filter 451-265 (11-14 V6) - Free Shipping

and when i tried to install it its missing one Mass Air Flow (MAF) sensor screw. When i asked the guy who i bought it from he said just screw it using the original MAF sensor screw.

but according to the instruction from the manufacture: http://1.cdn.lib.americanmuscle.com/files/52106.pdf

step #5 states that Do Not Use The Factory Screws!

but i feel like i could make it work. so my question is it worth it for me to install using stock screw or not?

Don't know the difference without seeing them but why not just buy a 8-32 Button Head Screw (#8)?

Nvm I panicked thinking i got ripped off buying through craigslist. Is this the screw they intended it to be? Crown Bolt #8-32 x 1/2 in. Internal Hex Button-Head Cap Screws (2-Pack)-69678 - The Home Depot

I would think so. It's exactly as Airaids packing list describes it. Plus they're stainless steel. You have one already to compare it to. Should be fine.

Enjoy the new CAI. It's going to make your car sound much more aggressive.

WOW installed it today and now the car sounds like a beast around 2-4.5k rpm. Definitely worth the money!

The CAI sound definitely adds a lot of personality to the car. Add an aftermarket exhaust and then your car will really howl when you open her up. Even if you don't, I think hearing the engine bay come alive sounds more intimidating then hearing just the exhaust. Enjoy!
