    Yes. You can use the stock MAF.

    What are you looking at getting?

    Well from what I've read over on the other site, people use the MAF in a blow through set-up. Others use Speed Density with a 3 bar MAP sensor.

    I don't know why it would be any different for a turbo than a supercharger set-up. I'm currently using my stock MAF on my SC.

    From what I've read, the closer you have the MAF to the stock location, the better off you are.

    I don't really understand the desire to run the MAF on boosted cars......just go sd with a good reputable tuner and be done with it. I could see how it would make the tuning easier down low but a good tuner should be able to get a sd tune nailed down.

    They had trouble getting the MAP sensor to work on my car, hence why we ended up using the MAF.
    It's on jackstands.
