It measures the flow of air - 'mass air flow'

Yes you will need to lock the port if the car does not have a maf sensor fitted

I believe only turbo charged cars have MAF sensors (the one in my golf gttdi 150 was replaced a couple of times!!).

Non turbo cars have them too.

 

Daniel, I would ask your question about the body kit in a separate thread to be honest to get the best response. If you want to do that I will edit the title of this one. 

 

what size is the hole that needs blanked?
