Isn't 65mm your stock size TB anyway? Only difference is your aftermarket one should port & polished... Therefore, stock MAF is fine, GT MAF is pointless.

The stock size s in the 50's I had a pic of my factory side by side with the 65 but idk what happened to it either way it still won't pull enough air to worry about upgrading the maf

On 94-98's for sure.
99-04's are 63mm at the inlet.

I personally would return the throttle body and use that $250 on something else since it is an expensive paperweight. The only thing you will gain is a marginal increase in throttle response unless you are extremely modified (600whp+)

See? Thats what I thought... I know I have 56mm stock, but I thought you New Edges had something larger. And the OP stated he had an '01 :p

But, we are all having this discussion... and I think the OP has already tuned out. LOL Either way -- we all say keep the stock MAF.

Wow, if ours is 63mm I think someone changed mine out lol, there is no way there was only 2mm difference between the two tb's

because we probably told him something he didn't want to hear, that getting a bigger one doesn't help lol

btw this thread was originally about a bigger MAF the TB was just kinda mentioned
