Can you buy a larger MAF or something like that? Like get a big MAF made for a mustang or something and splice the wires, or change the actual sensors out?

Re: Is it possible to upgrade the MAF? (ScrapinSi)

you can but the reading will be totally whacked for your ecu. You would need to have a custom chip made FOR THAT MAF sensor.
good luck.

Re: Is it possible to upgrade the MAF? (speed51133)

I've seen people use a mustang MAF sensor with an Apexi S-AFC. The mustang MAF sensor has a higher voltage range which is perfect for using the AFC to lower the voltages so the ECU still thinks it has a stock MAF. But speed is right it's probably better to use a custom chip.

Re: Is it possible to upgrade the MAF? (Fast2.0L)

can you put an AFC in an OBDI 2.0?? I didn't think you could... if you can, anybody have the wiring schematic?

Re: Is it possible to upgrade the MAF? (ScrapinSi)

putting an afc in isnt the easiest. can it be done? im sure. but nobody here has done it. a few say they have seen someone with it, or know someone with it, but for the most part, putting it in the 2.0L aba engine is kind of unexplored.
the cost of the 'stang MAF, and the cost of the AFC is pretty high. then if you run injectors.....
most people dont do this because your almost spending the same as like an SDS setup that controlls all your fueling and timing needs.
