    Best MAF

    Which is the best mass air flow sensor to buy? GM Stock, GM Stock but ported, or aftermarket like SLP. I have heads, cam, headers, air lid, throttle body.

    Keep the stock one as long as it is within the power range of your car. Aftermarket ones like Granatelli and SLP seem to cause nothing but problems on the cars that they are installed on.

    So just a stock unported 78mm will work fine? I have a Granatelli and my tuner thinks it giving off bad readings.

    No problem.

    They are good for plenty of power, and our cars are calibrated for them. Much easier to tune as well.

    just curious any one have experience with those new fully digital multisensor maf's from abaco. They are probably pretty expensive but supposedly baddass. They have small switch with preset calibration for gm vehicles built in and can also be programmed infinitely. They say DBX is most advanced meter ever produced and the 97 mm flows 1461 CFM! They look sick but its hard to say cause i dont know anyone who tried one yet.

    Mr. Luos,
    What type of intake and tb are you running? I have a SLP ported intake and bbk 80mm tb. Do you think it will be worth the $$$$ to upgrade to the Fast 92mm intake and tb?

    I have a ported FAST 90 and FAST 90 throttle body.

    Would it be worth the cost of the FAST 92 on yours??? I doubt it. Freaking price of those things....

    OK. Will my SLP, LS6 ported intake take a 125 shot of nitrous?

    yes the ls6 will take the shot...it is also worth noting...the new fast 92 will take it also..as could the old fast 90/90..the problem people would get is they wouldnt order an optional "Option" that helps adapt the 90/90 to run nitrous..if you do decide to get the 92/92 make sure you call up fast and ask them what the option is to help run nitrous on their intakes.

    Sure. Are you thinking direct injection though? Because I don't believe the LS6 intake can do that.
