They're pretty hard to come by but they do come up for sale every now and then.
What happened to yours?

My car is bucking and hesitating the same as 1991gt4rcboy above and I was told it could be the air flow meter.

Have you gone through the test procedure in the manual to ensure all the resistances between the pins are correct?
Have you continuity tested the wires from the AFM to the ECU?

Very few people would sell you just the AFM without the RC ECU as well so to save yourself some money & time you should really make sure that the AFM is actually faulty before replacing it.

I don't really know much about motors so am just goin on what my mechanic is telling me, I will ask him if he has done eny of that, but to be honest I don't think he has. I have had a hard time trying to find an AFM I have been sent the wrong part 3 times the part bein sent from a gt4 only and not an RC and these have a different connection plug

Definitely do some testing yourself, I know for a fact that general mechanics can massively misdiagnose our cars.
