I have a 76mm c&l MAF and was wondering i will feel the difference when i install it?? Seat of the pants dyno ya know??I have a stock engine with just bolt ons
If you use a better exhaust (i.e. Headers/H-Pipe) yes, but only if you do all the changes you mention, not only the MAF. The MAF meter itself will render nothing. I have friends who would swear they felt a difference without a H/C/I makeover by just doing the MAF alone and I have read several Mustang magazines in the past who have claimed the same thing about the MAF (backed by big name$ in the industry of course), but unless you have some type of force induction aside your current state, the rest is academic. I didn't feel a thing when I did it and I was bone stock when I did the swap. You see, you're actually not unlocking new power, as your intake plenum would still have the same opening and will be handling the same amount of MAX air induction it is capable of. Then you have the -stock- heads which were placed there because they match more or less THAT same quantity of air in an unported state making the best use of what is flowing in them. When you open up the exhaust side as you may have already done, you are actually eliminating a reasonable amount of flow restriction which would now permit the engine to produce "more" HP which, in reality, was always there, same was done when you eliminated the restrictive air intake silencer in the passenger fender before the filter, same as the KN filter which flows air much better, all contributed to better flow into the STOCK intake and heads. So, based on this you basically unleashed the "free" horsepower you had. You need to step up to the next level on upgrades. Do the H/C/I, then you'll convert all that air with it's new, matching burst of gas into new horsepower courtesy of your EEC. All this and I'm sure you still want to know what difference that MAF will do on it's own....how does 3HP sound (compensating for irregularities in air intake path)?.....Just my opinion.With headers,o/r hipe 76maf ,70mmTb,timing bump,pulleys,will i see much of a change in power??
The 76mm C&L MAF/CAI kit was my first mod and it definitely made the engine more responsive. Not a big HP gain, maybe 5-10rwhp, but a difference that I could feel by the SOTP and a good base for further mods.I have a 76mm c&l MAF and was wondering i will feel the difference when i install it??
