    No. Incidentally that's also what I have.

    I would just get the stock one. You'll lose resolution down low, where it is already picky as is. It's an exponential response, and I doubt you are hitting 4.5V now. Do a WOT pull logging MAF voltage. If you are above 4.8, I'd be concerned.

    You mean logging over 4.8 on the stock maf? What would a higher number indicate?

    Yeah. The MAF goes up to 5V. The ECU will only interpret it up to 5V I believe. Hence, people trick the MAF sensor by increasing the housing size. Hence, if you exceed that 5V... you need a larger diameter MAF housing or to convert to speed density. The MAF housing isn't really used to allow more air in... it's to allow the stock MAF sensor to decipher additional air. You basically have to apply a multiplier to your whole MAF scaling. While this allows higher amounts of air to be interpreted by the car... you squish the already cramped and touchy scaling down lower. I believe the difference between stock and 73mm diameter MAF housings in intake restriction of the stock intake is nominal when compared to the inlet plumbing... Either way, its worth noting.

    I guess in a nutshell, people upgrade the housing size because they run out of MAFV. If you are okay with the stock sized housing, stay with it to maintain your best resolution possible - similar to why you shouldn't oversize injectors normally. If you are going to run out of it, which I HIGHLY doubt you will without a significantly larger turbo, then you'll want to get the larger housing.

    Yeah. Another small difference is that the stock sized MAF housing will at least work if you put it on, right out of the garage. I'd apply a scalar to the tune before even starting it with the 73mm.

    Talk to your tuner about it - he'll probably have a preference.

    Will do. Don't know who I'm going to go with for etuning this time yet.

    Be prepared for quite a few iterations this time around. Equal Length headers really change your boost control tables, a lot. Between those and my EWG... it took me a TON of pulls to get my boost control dialed in. It isn't just your target boost/wgdc anymore =(.

    If you use open source, make sure you set up stand alone logging. Leaving a laptop on is annoying.

    The recent firmware update kinda fouled mine up. It seems like I need to leave it connected to the laptop until after I plug it in now. It was supposed to allow time stamps on the logs (which it does)... but now I can't log unless I plug it in with my laptop connected. The thing has power even when the cars off, so it is only an issue when I actually pull the cable at least.

    No, I've thought about selling the AP and going to open source but I like to use my AP as a feedback knock gauge.

    I approve this thread but mostly because of the flogging.
