Are there any cars than use a MAF meter for 24lb injectors that will bolt on my car?

    I am going to need a new MAF meter, but I don't want to buy a new one, any JY cars have one or something?

    The F series truck with the 351W use #24's. I don't know if the housing itself will work but you could swap the MAF sensor.

    just make sure the meter is actually calibrated for the 24's and it's not done through the EEC on them like the cobra's. their meters are for 19's but run 24's on the cobra's through the computer from what i have been told. Your best bet would buy a 189 dollar 75mm pro m bullet IMO

    Well the thing is I don't know if I am going to run boost yet, if I do, i'll need 36lbers, and i don't want to spend a lot on a new MAF when I'll have to do it again. Isn't it like $100 or so to get it recalibrated for bigger injectors?

    what is your combination.. do you even need 24's. 19's will handle close to 300 hp.

    19's will get you 300 and then some.

    I've been told the cobra meter is actually for 19's and is calibrated for the 24's throught the eec, not the meter

    ponyboy19 is right, most vehicles' injector calibration is through the computer not the MAF. Ever see the Cobra Uprgade kit from Ford Racing? It comes w/ a meter, 24# injectors, and a Cobra computer. It comes w/ a computer b/c the Cobra meter has the same injector curve as a GT/LX meter. Point is, Ford Racing wouldn't include the computer if the meter compensated for the 24's.

    If you upgrade the injector size now to 24#ers and decide to change later, the person that buys the 24# injectors off you will probably need a meter too, right?

    And just for the sake of argument, 24# injectors often do just fine on supercharged cars. If you can budget to build a motor that actually needs 36's, the price of a new set of injectors and recailbrating the meter won't seem like much. :rolleyes:
