Default 88 Notchback

I've had an 88 notchback that i bought wrecked for 2,000 it has 94k miles but it has a ton of mods done to the car, however my 18th birthday is right around the corner also with prom and i took my 99 gt to prom last year and i was wanting to fix my 88 completely for this year, whats the best MAF and injectors that i should go with on this car, it has been switched to maf and has a 70 mm bbk throttle body, edelbrock heads, long tube headers, dont know which fuel pump, no ac and no smog so those have been deleted, aeromotive fuel press regulator, h pipe ( dont know what brand ) but it is catless, flowmaster 40's, bbk subframe connectors, b&m short shifter, 373 gears, 15x8 draglites and it has a 303 cam dont know exactly which one, the guy i bought it off of doesnt know which cam is in it or lift duration and he swares up and down its a 347 stroker, but my main question is what MAF and injectors should i put in it, and it needs one rear rim where it was wrecked, i bought a brand new 15x8 from LMR and its not exactly the same as the other original, the other has a 38-00 stamped on it, im lost and im not sure where i can get another rim to match and i dont know which maf and injectors i should put in this car, sorry for the long paragraph im just trying to get as much detail in as possible, thanks and here is a video of the car when i first got it

It sounds like you need 24# injectors. I would also go with a 73 or 76 mm C&L maf housing and tube. You always want your maf housing larger than your throttle body. You'll also need at least a 110 or 155lph fuel pump.

You don't want to change the fuel pressure, you will be changing the fuel volume if you go up from the stock injector size. The stock fuel pump is 88lph, that won't cut it if you go up in injector sizes. You want a bigger maf housing than 55mm that is stock on your car also.

alright thanks but do you know much about weld draglite rims? my car has what i thought would be a 15x8 rim and i had to buy a new one due to one being warped, i bought a 15x8 on latemodelrestoration and its different from the other one that came on the car, it has 38-00 stamped on the side of it and i need to buy a matching one but i cant find anything about it, you can tell that the one with 38-00 is a little deeper dish but its still a 15x8 or thats atleast what im thinking

Have you thought about calling LMR and explaining your predicament? Maybe they can help you figure it out and take the wrong rim you bought back and get the right one.
