If you found a great deal on one or something pick it up and just install it when you need it.

You can as long as it is calibrated for your injector size, but it won't do you much good until your engine has been modded enough to take advantage of the extra air flow it will provided.

Look at the ABACO MAF

It can be tuned/recalibrated for various injector sizes using your PC or Laptop without having to send it in to be recalibrated when you change injectors.
