Question do i need an aftermarket MAF?

I have a 99 V6 and am interested in getting ported heads for my stock engine. I was wondering if i change out things like this if my factory MAF will be able to sense it or do i need to get a better one.
Also are there any other sensors or electronics that i need to know about so i can swap things out the correct way? And what if i switch out the rocker arms or cam?
i don't know if the added air flow will make a difference to my cars computer.

You do not need an aftermarket maf... just a tune

I have a diablosport tuner but i don't always use it, so i don't want to send that in to get it reprogramed.

Re: do i need an aftermarket MAF?

Like the guys said, no maf needed. Keep your stock one, a larger one won't add any HP at this point, and the stock one will keep your a/f more accurate. If you had a 4.2 with H/C/I then i would say go to an 80mm GT maf, but you're not at that point yet.

SCT is a compnay that supplies custom tuning hardware and software to its dealers www.sctflash.com

I am one of their dealers.
