if you could calibrate the computer to it. you could the go at a tb and remove the housing for the maf. seen it done on a firebird with the l36 before with good results. he used hp tuners to tune it

You need a tuner to be able to use that maf sensor and there would be little benefit without a larger throttle body.

That MAF won't work on the Bonneville. That'* for vehicles with an inline-MAF sensor, which your year of 3800 don't have.
P.*. I have that same MAF sensor installed on my 3.5 Aurora!

The blue hose is gone now, they just didn't have any in stock when I ordered before. It didn't need any reprogramming either BTW. But regardless, it wont' work on your car because it has a different MAF setup.

Bigger maf on its own has no real gain, you need a larger throttle body too.
Say a Northstar TB with LQ4 maf 85mm bore
But you need a custom pcm burn (ie Intense) or a programmer like DHP power tuner.
