Modifying your MAF sensor - whats the go?
Hi peoples, i did a quick search, using dodgy words lol, and couldnt find an answer.
my question is - can you port out the stock MAF sensor without everything turning to poo?
i just got a 96 ford explorer MAF sensor to go with my A9L computer and tweecer. the explorer unit is advertised as a 75mm one, but there is a giant great bloody post in the middle, with a riveted on plate on the back, for the sample tube.
what would happen if i cut the 'post' nearly completely off and removed the plate at the back, so the air just goes straight through the sample tube and out the other side, without having to go 'down' the inside of the now non-existant post?
would it run rich because of slightly more airflow going through the tube (due to less restriction) or would it run lean due to more air flowing through the actual unit due to the removal of most of the 'post'???
im planning on about 220-250hp at the wheels, do you think its worth the trouble? and if it may cause problems, will the tweecer be able to correct for this with appropriate programming of the A9L?
