You will either need a maf that is calibrated for the 24s, or a maf housing that has a sample tube calibrated for the 24s.

C&L performance makes the MAF housing with sample tubes for all sizes of injectors.

If your done with engine mods, your stock 19's are fine for the mods you have now.

If your still in the process of looking for more power with better heads, intake, etc. 24's would be a good idea.

Replace your stock maf with one from a 94-95 and have a tune done for the car.

what exactly does a a 94-95 have to do with any thing, they use the exact same maf.

All he needs is a maf housing calibrated for 24lb injectors, no tune .

Actually. The fox maf is a 55mm housing, and the sn95 is a 70mm.

Also, using a "calibrated maf" is hack. Do it right, or don't do it at all.

94-95 have 70mm MAF is correct. But your second statement is shakey. I ran a C&L calibrated MAF and the car ran fine and banged out low 12s on motor when the 302 was in the car.

You said MAF not MAF housing, the sensor is the same on both cars.

And its not a hack to use a calibrated MAF or MAF housing. He is going from 19s to 24s , its not like he is introducing forced induction and jumping to 60s. Calibrated housing works just as well as a tune for him. And much cheaper.

You sure you really want to get into this with me? It didn't fair very well for you when I posted here before.

Lmao , of course you want every one to get a tune. That's how you make money, convincing pple that don't need a tune that they do.

And FYI the link in your signature violates forum rules, I suggest you remove it before the mods do

LOL really? Legend inyour own mind! All you've done in 29 posts is push a tune on everyone. Are you really going to tell me the cal. Tubes don't work when I ran the exact part with great success??? Go sell your tuning some where else.Dawson is usually right so heed his advice before you get jammed up with a modarator.

If I had my old account you'd see my post count much closer to 23,000. I still see a few of my stickies pinned at the top.

What did you lost the old account for? Violating forum rules?

So that often leaves it up to the owner to tune for drivibility and most don't have the know how here to even use aftermarket tuners, much less understand where and which schalar tables to make the changes at to achieve the desired result..........It's to long for me to even start to explain to most here.........milk before meat!!

That is exactly the point I try to make in every post I make in this section. If you have the money. Go crazy and do things right. (I did) But if 95% of the guys in this section had the money, they wouldn't be daily driving a 25 year old foxbody. We all know that. Adder never got that! If I had a dollar for every thread that was started with budget build in the title I'd have enough money for a second track toy.

why would you daily drive a foxbody? expecially something with a v-8......in one year the fuel it'd cost me to fund a foxbody ride to work everyday on my 75 mile round trip, I could buy a second beater car that got good mpg.......which is why I d/d a vw diesel...lol
