can already tell you what just the cai and maf made in difference since that was the first thing i did when i bought the car. picked up a solid tenth. first time i took the car to the track had no more than flowmasters on it. made six passes, two every 30 to 45 minutes. found the maf and cai at a really good deal from a friend in town and went back the next weekend. same weather, same track picked up a tenth. as i said i know that just those two dont really make a huge difference in power, but i also know that for what i gave for mine and what i got out of it it was worth it to me. oh and for the false reading from the fender mount i did have a small problem with that as well, but one of my local shop owners told me to roll the maf over 45 degrees so that the flow tube was at the top of the bend and it would help, and it did seem to.

Thanks for this thread; very informative. I have a K&N Fuel Injection Performance Kit CAI; no MAF upgrade for me.

Default NOT to upgrade your stockMAF

I can't thank you guys enough for your thoughts on larger MAF's. I fell prey to the high HP expectations and bought the C&L with the 70mm MAF. Personally, I think the car runs like crap. I originally purchased the K&N in 2002 all they did at that time was offer the CAI from the 5.0. The fit was not perfect, so I decided to move up to the C&L. Luckily, I checked yesterday after reading all the posts and I believe I have all the original factory components to install back to original. Thanks again.
