yes, you can connect all 3 into the one inlet

as for which you should connect to, check the manual.

this is what they generally look like on the inside.

ideally they should have a baffle to help the oil settle like this

I'm having the same issue locating the MAF sensor on my car and I also have a MY06 2005 2.5i. Based on the image below, it appears to me on my car that it is located where the indented circle is to the immediate right of the two left most red circles. Can anyone confirm this and if so, how to safely remove it for cleaning?

Depending on model some have a MAF and others a MAP sensor. I'm not sure but I think a difference between the N/A 2.0 and 2.5 litre models maybe. If that is your engine bay in the photo then you have a MAF and its located on the neck of your filter housing as mentioned above. Again not 100% sure but I think MAP sensor is located on throttle body

If you're referring to what is shown in the image above , there is nothing at this location on my car, just the output pipe from the air box.

Then you have a MAP (Manifold absolute pressure) located around the throttle body I think. Not sure as it's been a while haha

Thanks for shedding some light on this, I've been searching for a while and haven't been able to find anything. Without having a good look around the throttle body, I can recall seeing a boost sensor, but I will have a better look for the MAP. I'm interested to know what the other sensor is that I thought may have been the MAF.

Pretty sure that 'boost' sensors is the MAP. the Sensor on the big black box I think is a temp sensor.
