Default big MAF conversion.

ok first question, how big is a stock MAF meter?

second question, does anyone make a MAF conversion for my 88

with a larger than stock MAF meter?

and is there anything bad about having say, injectors that are too big, too big of a MAF meter, throttle body, etc?

i plan on later mods, but i dont wanna have to do the intake **** more than once.

Ill tell you what You have to do. I been there done that.

Go to a junk yard and pick up these parts.

A. Computer
B. Maf sensor and plug
C. Tubeing ( if you have CAI skip this)

Then got to your auto parts store and get these.

A. 12g Red wiring
B 12g Black wiring
C. 12g Brown wiring
D. 12g blue wiring

Fallow above directions (splicing wires in and moving 2 pins) and your done.
