MAF upgrade!

I need to upgrade my mass airflow sensor and don't know what size to upgrade it too... Here are a list of mods I have on the car: 00 GT
Bbk Cold air intake
Bbk 70mm throttle body
Accufab plenum
NGK Iridium spark plugs
Accel coil packs
Typhoon intake manifold
I have a 3.73 gear to be installed soon..
What do you guys consider?

Why do you think you'll need a MAF upgrade? The stock one should handle your mods just fine.

The mechanic who worked on my car told me that it needed upgraded. So I don't know... Which the car is running a little rich though.

And every since I installed my new intake, the cars idling has been acting up... He also told me to put a new throttle position sensor..

Doesn't seem to me you need upgraded maf at all.... If your have idling problems after the intake install I would assume your problem is caused by the new intake. Not sure what it could be but I would clean your maf that you have now and check the throttle position censor and iac censor.

Ah so your mechanic doesn't know **** about aftermarket upgrades then or thinks it's like an old 5.0 that needs MAF upgrade when doing injectors. Start with doing an idle relearn and go from there. Did you remove the air screen on your MAF when you installed the CAI?

Stock MAF is good for more power than the stock rotating assembly can handle. Time to find a new mechanic who does not have his head neck deep.

Another question, Would it be a good idea to upgrade the fuel injectors then? They're stock as well... I was suggested to upgrade them to 24 lbs?

Are you going to upgrade the maf? And do you have a tuner yet?
