I have been reading into this upgrading of the maf on this site. Some say it is pointless on NA cars and some say it is good. Here are a list of my mods. Hopefully someone can tell me if I should stray from the 80mm that comes stock and go bigger or not.

2002 GT, 5 speed, 3.73 gears, fenderwell CAI, Typhoon intake system (75mm TB, upper plenum, lower intake), underdrive pulleys, BBK xpipe to flowmaster 40s, hypertech programmed

With so much flow from my typhoon intake and the new xpipe, is it a good idea for a bigger maf, and if so would i need to change injectors? Thanks yall.

Your injectors should be fine at this point with those mods. Are you looking to go FI?

FI = Forced Induction. ie turbo, or supercharger or a combo of both.

Yeah, the Eaton will be costly to make it work on a 2v. Cams and LT's sound good:bigthumbsup Do you have head work done yet? That will help out a bit if you decide to get a aftermarket intake manifold. The o/r mid pipe will net you some decent gains also.

i'd recommend talking to an experienced tuner. they'll know from experience what an maf can offer. if i understand it right, you'd only need to upgrade if your current maf combined with your different upgrades was pegging the signal. otherwise it's not gonna matter.

if you want to upgrade, though, i have a lightning maf that came with my procharger kit that i didn't use and will sell.

at your power level, your currant MAF sensor is fine...as an example. my 1996 GT ran 11.90'[email protected] wth a highly modded 4.6 SOHC and a "stock" 80mm Ford MAF sensor....so NO need to spend $$$ on one at this point....

Maf

Totally agree. You are a long way from maxing out that MAF.

Yes, assuming your sensor is in good shape. If you do this, be careful with it - they are easily damaged or gummed up with oil.
