    the lightning MAF is the cheapest but you will need a tune.

    I am running 42lbs injectors but for 42's ots got to be tuned. If I didn't already have the MAF on my car then I would have gotten a Lightning MAF.

    They are pretty much the same the lightning is bigger though and cheaper since it is mass produce and pro m went out of buisness but someone bought them out.

    Why not keep your stocker and buy a Diablosport MAF.ia???? It's simple plug-and-paly with your stock MAF.

    Your stock MAF should be able to flow high enough, but is limited electronically by how much it can read, that's where the MAF.ia comes into play. Then you won't have to worry about getting the Lightning MAF unit calibrated.

    Lightning MAF is probably your best choice IMHO. You could also call the tuning shop where you plan to have the tune done and see which one they recommend.
