I replaced mine with a 90mm setup - gained all sorts of HP.























That horsepower 'might' have been due to the supercharger mod that was related to it though.

lol

The only MAF sensor mod I know is CLEANING IT. Yes, it works wonders. Make sure you use cleaner made specifically for MAF sensors and nothing else.

The only reason you would ever need to upgrade the MAF is if you were doing it as a supporting modification that would go along with a pretty serious power adder, whatever it may be. The only thing you could really do is swap the MAF housing to a larger diameter, which would change the sensors calibration, requiring a reflash or a custom tune to compensate.

simply doing a larger dia. MAF, with supporting software changes would do NOTHING for performance without other core power adders/modifications.

You read that here.

Did it awhile back, 19lb injectors helped a tiny bit but drilling out the maf feed tube did nothing.
