hey guys id like to redo my intake because the pipe is very small on the gen 4.5 vulcan, because the maf is mounting pretty much directly on the airbox there is no direct adapter... so im wondering how i could make it work with a seperate pipe?

i already tried 2 types of adapters at autozone and both had circular slots which were too narrow. the maf for the gen 4.5 is rectangular and long.

any ideas? im sure someone has had to have done it.

The MAF is calibrated to that diameter of pipe that it sits in. If you take it out and put it in a larger pipe, it will no longer properly read.

Spectre sells an adapter kit for the Ford cartridge MAFs, it comes with sleeves to create the same diameter pipe as the MAF came out of. This kit is usually not in stock at any of the big box parts stores.

the spectre adapter pipe is the one from autozone it has several different adapters, all with a circular base so the maf wont fit in.

i have an xcal 3 and should be able to calibrate that.
