More air is better. Back to my question. Is your OEM MAF body restrictive? Or more restrictive than that one?

Just like this one that has been posted a couple times:

http://www.jetchip.com/products.asp?...&model=591#591

I have a hard time thinking that 300-400 bucks is worth 5-10 horsepower. I can't imagine it'* got THAT much better flow than stock.

As with all things like this, it takes the first person to decide if it'* worth trying, then tell everyone whether it was worth it afterwards. It would be nice to see some dyno results.

Well as soon as my CC situation is straightened out I might order it or contact them and see if they have a Dyno sheet (doubtful)

Sounds to me like one of those mods that you'd do once you have most of your motor finished, and you just need to squeeze those few last extra ponies out of it.

I'd wait.
