Around 325 to 345 HP at the wheels--and yes you will need a tune, however if you have not yet ditched the stock tune you need to do that well before worrying about a larger MAF...

Ok. I'm just at that point where all that's left is headers and trans work. I just have a 93 bama tune.

You do not need a new MAF yet then.

You can datalog MAF flow with the SCT tuner. When you see the "counts" get up over 900 to 950, or the voltage over 4.6, or air flow over 2450 lb/h then it will be time for a new MAF--until then installing a higher capacity device will do nothing...
