    Leave your MAF alone.

    I have a question.. Is it really ideal to replace your MAF then? Mine came with the Delphi (I think...bought it used) Then I went out and got an SLP MAF...the thing threw me a SES code. When you get down to it.. is this mod even worth the money? I am wondering if I should go put the stock one back in (if it is really the stock one) and junking the SLP one if it would be more beneficial (cost efficient)...

    Stock MAF. It is good for 500RWHP.

    If you get to the point where you need to upgrade...you should go SD tune.

    Delphi is an OEM company for GM.
    (Original Equipment Manufacture) considered to be stock for most part houses.

    As Mr. Luos stated, you wanna ditch the MAF and go SD when your motor flows more air than the MAF can read. This form of tuning uses the values all the other sensors on the motor sends to the pcm, in order to calculate the afr. This in turn makes it more difficult to tune since youre looking at several other sensors for values instead of just one. Hope this helps!
