I have been looking at what I need to do to my car, and the next thing is the MAF sensor. I've lookd around a bit on the net and can't find anywhere else that sells them, apart from CAPA, and they're way overpriced, IMO. So where else can I get them from, and what sort of prices are more reasonable?? And I reckon I want a 73mm or 75mm one.
Hey Aaron, I'd be looking at an AU2 XR8 MAF. I hear they are substantially larger than the ones we have and can be calibrated to our injectors for air/fuel ratio on a dyno, plus they are a bit cheaper than an aftermarket MAF. Dont ask me the price tho.
As ebxr8240 has said, the USA is the best place to get them from especially with the current australian dollar. Otherwise www.vpw.com.au has the GMS ones about $100 cheaper than capa and also the C&N ones for about $400 from memory although they are not on their website.
And Jeg's has the GMS ones for AUD$325, although I can't find how much the shipping is. Summit say that all orders will be roughly AUD$45 to ship all of the stuff here.
Shipping from Jeg's turned out to be about $38US with a $9US packaging fee, for a parcel about equal to a MAF. From memory, Summit charge about $25US for packaging which is a bit over the top. I would budget on a little more than $45AUD just to be safe. Also keep in mind, car part orders over $250AUD get charged a 15% import duty on the price of the goods and then 10% GST on the entire cost.
You will probably find you will get them cheaper here through vpw. I worked it out at about $650 from jegs, where vpw has them for $599.
The problem with the GMS ones is that you cannot change injectors, like the C&L ones unless you have something like a tweecer or eec tuner. If you intend on going above 150rwkw you should really think about doing injectors at the same time, or going for the c&L one, which isn't as good but you can just change the sample tube when you do change injectors.
