70mm MAF is good. You want to use rags inside the manifold so that shavings dont get in there. Also you dont just want to port you want to make it into a smooth transition, like at an angle from 65mm to 60mm so the air flows clean. Good luck.

There will only be so much air you will get into your engine because of the fact that the bottle neck is your TB. So no need for the huge MAF.

Agreed. But you really think 75 would just be overkill?

W/ a 65mm TB, 75ish should be fine. Most after market MAF's are 73+ anyway, unless you get a Cobra MAF. It won't hurt you, so you'll have room for upgrades later and not have to spend the $ 2x.

I use my Dremel for everything. Home Depot or Lowe's sells them for under $50 and the grinding/cutting kit is ~12 or so.

Not tryin to hijack this mans thread, just a quick Q. Would 70 TB and 76 MAF be good on an H/C/I setup?
