Re: MAF

Not worth it. Your stock maf is adequate until you exceed 275-300RWHP. If you do go and install a different maf you'll want to get a new dynotune.

Re: MAF

the maf wont do anything, 265 is a big stretch with only two mods.... Im betting the dyno is off.

I had a bullit make close to that once, with Lts, but it had the stock intake tube, and of course the bullit has a better intake manifold.

Re: MAF

Gears and a MAF have nothing to do with gaining hp. Dyno's are good for tuning your car, taking it to the track is how you measure your performance gains.

+1 With what Spector said.

Re: MAF

so you guys dont believe that long tubes, maf, power pipe, and a X-pipe instead of a H-pipe would equate to 20 hp over my set up?

Re: MAF

The long tubes will have more of an affect on his numbers over your than the MAF. THe power pipe might be good for about 2-3, x is good for about 3-4 maybe, and the LT's = the rest pretty much.

Re: MAF

I will say you are correct. Now, if you want to throw that to long tubes, you will get more than just getting the MAF.

Re: MAF

yeah its kinda funny, my buddies car that im speaking of is no louder than my car cause he has the long tubes with a x-pipe. when i do the headers should i stick with a h or get a x? i know i need to get a short pipe with the long tubes any way, but ive heard that you can maximize your hp with certian x/h pipe and muffler combos something like baffled vs. flow through design?
