Default Maf sensor recommendations

My maf sensor got soaked a few months back when caught in the rain (i dont drive the car often, especialy in snow or rain).I didn't know it at the time and assumed the spitting and sputtering was from a couple of other things. I changed the o2 sensors, new TPS, cleaned iac valve, and after all that it still ran horribly. So I borrowed a friends diagnostic machine and read maf bad connection. When I unplugged the connectors there was corrosion. Cleaned corrosion and used dielectric grease. Still ran horrible. So I pulled the sensor to clean it. It had a 6 to 4 adapter and I removed it and it was full of water. I shook out all the water I could and placed in front of a dryer for a hour. It ran worse than before after reinstalling. I called pro-m and asked if they would warranty the part since the rubber sealer didn't do its job and of course I got a no on 320$ part. So my question is, does any one have any suggestions on another brand 80mm 42# calibration maf? Suggestions?
FYI the car is setup with a super charger and the duct work is running in the fender well and is prone to the elements

Trying look at SCT's stuff. I know they have a 90mm unit, but I'm unsure if it comes pre programmed to injector size.

I used a C&L. That brand should keep your air cleaner out of the elements also???
