    Ive been contemplating going to an 05+ maf but what are the advantages of it over say a lightning maf? And if I were swap to one, Id be na, what size pipe should I use and would it benefit me? Right now I dont have an sn95 so I cant give an example of mods but lets say a full bolt on 2v with a 75mm tb and full exhaust with long tubes.

    Is this for the SN95 you don't have? Because there is no distinct advantage of a slot style MAF over a tonsil style MAF.

    Yes and no. Im looking at a few 2v's right now and theyre all just bolt on and Im planning to do full bolt ons and long tubes. I was just wondering if itd have any advantages on a setup like that.

    A good original factory Ford maf is your best bet. The stock maf size is plenty adequate for n/a. And if you do need more, the lightning maf is the next step.

    The slot maf has its advantages if your FI but the LMAF is a great next step or even an SCT 2400.

    Same electronics, different packaging/housing and a little more noisier than a tonsil style MAF according to Chris Richards at Pro-M Racing.

    Yeah I think the noise comes from its wider range. Thats the down side of having a MAF too big for your setup. you cant get too detailed with the tune.

    And if anyone is bored, you can view my 7 part interview with Chris Richards from Pro-M Racing on Youtube. You will learn something, trust me.

    Great videos and I am sure I'm using the wrong terms to describe things my brain is fried.
