    The certain way you speak of is with the harness facing forward. Is it that way? Did you clean the MAF with electronics cleaner or MAF cleaner? Is the harness facing the nose if the car? You didn't change the intake, right?

    There is only one correct way: harness forward.

    Also, your statement about cleaning your intake makes me wonder if you have the correct intake on the car (the OEM Subaru intake).

    and it still wont work but if it was bad before then why did it start before i took it off
    I don't follow what this means

    and whould it help if i got a tune?
    Moot point; the car must run to be tuned.

    Undo what you did in reverse order. Check for a loose connection, make sure the MAF is oriented correctly, make sure you are using the right intake.

    help!!!!! maf problems

    You're not asking I realise but since we're discussing things anyway my view is that you should find a reliable vendor and discuss your goals. Then consider a package rather than piecemeal purchases. I say this because you mentioned an IC first and then a turbo whereas I'd expect the opposite order - and with that opposite order, the corresponding logic.
