MAF

Looking to do a new intake setup with a 70mm bbk throttle body/egr spacer and a 76mm bbk maf. But the maf is asking with or without cold air calibration.

If I go with the 24lb do I have to change the injectors and fuel rail,fuel pump,regulator, all at the same time or will it be ok for a year or 2

MAF and injectors have to be done at the same time, because the MAF is calibrated to work with the injectors. There is no need to change fuel rails or lines unless they are damaged, clogged up, etc. The stock units flow way more than 24lb injectors could.

Do you have a cold air intake?

Alright, well you would need to get the 24lb injectors, and the Mass Air Sensor calibrated for 24lb injectors and fenderwell CAI.

You could look into the electronic adjustable ABACO MAF. The info on that could be found in the stickies.

Go with the ABACO MAF. Their smallest is 85 MM, but it will work fine for your needs.
They can be calibrated on your desktop or laptop PC, so anytime you make injector changes or just need to "tweak it a bit you can.


For 24 lb injectors, you just need to match the MAF, which is easy to do with the ABACO. The fuel system upgrades can be made as you need them.

I just got one for my car and my tuner who is a big 5.0 tunner told me they a junk and that they cause them problems all the time, like frying the board on them happens alot he said and if i wanted to use it it would cost me almost 2 more hours of dyno time just to tune it proper ly? ?? I was so astounded to hear that from them. They told me to go with a c&l and iv heard nothing but crap about them and they swear by them so im so unsure what im going to do right now with it weather to use it and have it cost me another few hundred in dyno time or to sell it and get something else
Ps. Sorry not trying to hijack just what i found out yesterday

C&L's are known to cause issues, research on Google and see.
Save the Dyno money, buy you a PMS and a Wideband and tune it yourself?
Then you can make adjustments whenever you want without spending more money on another Dyno tune.


Everyone has their personal preferences and I'm sure that some ABACO meters have had failures, but overall what I have found reading reviews of them has been good.


They are very easy to program and have room for several different injector size tunes.
Or you can use the spots for fine tuning the tables for one injector size to fine tune your application.
