El1 Maf Vs El2 Maf

Guys just wondering if there was a big differance in the Series 1 ELXR8 MAF and the Series 2 ELXR8 MAF. How much bigger was the EL2 compared to the EL1. I have been told the EL1 was 55mm and the EL2 is 58mm. Can anyone confirm this?

Is it worth me swapping my MAF for an EL2 or should i focus on obtaining an AU MAF housing

Re: El1 Maf Vs El2 Maf

Both ran the same MAF, which is about 55mm at the smallest point. There is probably no point changing to a larger MAF until you have some other mods done first, but then upgrading to an AU one or aftermarket C&L or GMS one will give you a decent improvement.

Re: El1 Maf Vs El2 Maf

Missed that, yeah you would see a decent power increase I would think. Instead of the AU MAF, look at the C&L ones from the US, even with freight etc it will still work out cheaper than the AU one and is a better unit. Summit racing stock them for $125US so you are probably only looking at around $250 all up. Link http://store.summitracing.com/partde...%2D8A101%2D021

Re: El1 Maf Vs El2 Maf

Go for a MAF about 70mm Thomas! Would really complement the rest of your setup. You know what's bad about having all those mods and having your intake choked up by a small restrictive MAF.

Re: El1 Maf Vs El2 Maf

Thomas, the one in the pic looks like an older GT Cobra MAF, similar to what was used on the EB GT and ED Sprint.

Philstoj, I have ordered from them before. You do not get import taxes or duty until you reach $250AU wort of goods (not including freight etc). Summit charge a packing fee for overseas orders of around $25US, you can find out the exact cost on there site somewhere.
