I have a 5.3 and i am making a homemade cold air intake for it i want to connect the MAF to the throttle body and a k&n filter to the MAF. i want it to look even, centered, but at the same time i dont think i have ever seen it done. I am however curious because in all ls1 setups the MAF is alway separatedfrom the throttle body by some type of a tube. Can mounting the MAF this way effect the way that my truck will run.? please let me know
