MAF to pod adaptor?

Hey all,

I am in need of a MAF to pod filter adaptor to suit my car. Anyone know where I can get one of these from? (92 v8 fairlane with MAF that screws into airbox.)

Thanks

Brendan

No, you just unscrew the 4 bolts connect to the Airbox and the adaptor has a Flat plate that fits perfectly on to where the airbox used to fit with pre drilled holes. The same bolts from the airbox will hold it on fine. You can just slide the Pod (or extention) over the other end of the adaptor!
Then I recon you should probly make some sort of heat shield. Somthing im yet to do from lazyness mainly!

Re: MAF to pod adaptor?

Sotr of, the Square piece the MAF is on bolts directly to the adaptor insted of the airbox.
Incidently, I left the MAF unpluged by accident when i put the pod on first and the car ran a bit rough but it actually Roared to life when I hit the gas (after almost stalling)! Seemed to have heeps of power tho!
I got to the shop thinking somthing was wrong. Bought some stuff came out tied to reverse and go home and have a look and the bastard kept stalling so i had a look and pluged it back in!

Falcon V8's have a MAF (Mass air flow ) meter which tells the computer how much air is coming into the engine so it can accurately inject the right amount of fuel. The pod to MAF adaptor, just allows you to run a pod style air filter instead of the standard falcon airbox.

Running with the MAF unpluged makes the engine run very rich, so it should have more power up high, but as you found out, is a pain to idle. I left mine unplugged one time too, luckily I found what it was straight away.
