I personally would go no smaller than 18 for something like this... and only if I were in a pinch... Optimally, you want to match it ... The ECU sends & receives voltage & current from the MAFS in order to effectively heat the element & measure the airflow. Adding thicker wire essentially raises the resistance. Now whether or not the effect would be drastic or even noticeable is something I don't know for this application... But your best bet is to stick as close to the same gauge wire here as possible...
