You set the fuel tables in the tune. "Calibrated" mafs are hackjobs and not the correct way to run a new injector size.

The tuner will dial it in, just make sure the SCT sensor you are getting is box stock and not messed with. Like I said, "calibrated" MAFs are a hack way to set injectors and if you are getting a tune its completely pointless. If you are not getting a tune, no reason at all to run a 90mm MAF lol.

You may not need one that big... what is your app again? For the setup I'm going to run with the Novi I just found an old 76mm C&L housing I had in a box and I'm going to throw a stock Ford MAF element in there and have the tuner roll with it. How big is your TB?


Also a fox MAF has no flange like that although you can modify them.

Ford racing steel flywheel and better clutch
Edelbrock performer intakes

Pretty much anything 42 lbs. and over is gonna need to be tuned. That is too much fuel so it needs trimmed correctly so no easy answer.

Like I said, "calibrated" MAFs are basically "calibrated" by ****ing with the voltage on the meter to trick it into sending signals to the computer like 19s are still installed in the engine. They do work ok for basic bolt on apps, I ran one in a pushrod for years with no issues but that was a bolt on car. For a HCI or a power adder... nope.

Been researching MAFs for my 2000 with the Paxton.


Don't even bother with the **** you are looking at like in post 6. You want a slot style MAF like the 2005+ uses. Lots of places have kits for them. In a 3" tube they support 650+ and as you up the size of the tube you get more tuning capability but its better to keep the size as small as possible for your expected power level.


I'm doing a setup exactly like the one in the attached pic which will be blow through.

Here is all the stuff you need to run a setup like that.

PAS Xtreme Slot Style Mass Air Sensor w/ Universal Harness & Flange - Power Adder Solutions, Inc. - Mustang Performance Parts

On3 sells the same thing for a little less

On 3 Performance 05+ Slot Style HPX Maf Kit | On3Performance

Obviously you need a tune either way. These are the preferred meters for tuners these days. Whatever MAF you buy will also come with a 30 point transfer function sheet for your tuner to work with.


Finally, there is a nice little chart on this page here


http://vmptuning.com/maf-sensors/hpx/


For tubing diameters per application. You'll actually be better off sizing your tubing for your power level. As you can see, for what you (and I) will be doing 3" tube is optimal. Which is why I am just having my flange/sensor welded right into the intercooler piping just like in the below pic because it is a nice 3" straight shot tube.


That is another thing, MAF must be put in a straight run of tube to be optimal. Putting it in/near a corner will **** it up.


Hope this has been helpful.


edit: Added bonus to the 05+ MAF is the IAT sensor is integrated into it. This eliminates a potential leak/blowout point in the intake tract where the IAT sensor would normally be mounted.

Whoever told you not to use it should never be listened to for any sort of advice in this area ever again. If you aren't going to use it then sell it to me.

Seriously.

Pigtails for it are $30. Blow through is easier to tune which is why I am going with it.


I'm going to bed in a few minutes but PM me with how much you'd want for it shipped to zip code 08641 NJ and the part number and pics of it pulled out of the tube if you can. Looks like its probably a BA5000.

BA5000 is $230 on AM but full slot style HPX kits with the flange and pigtail are in the links in the thread above for $224 and $259.

Don't need the pipe unless you want to cut the flange out clean and send that to me lol.


Just FYI, its $60 for the Pigtail and the flange and I can get a whole kit for $224 shipped with the On3 HPX setup. This means you'd have to be a lot lower than $160 shipped on this sensor TBTH.


I don't want to insult you with a lowball offer or anything but that's just the reality of new vs used in this case. If you feel you can get more for it elsewhere, I won't be mad if you decide to keep it and try to get more.
