It works great with the ARC2 and stock ECU.

You wire the ARC2 up to the ECU (like a SAFC)... and the moster MAF bolts right on.

Why did you go with the Cobra MAF? They are a mere 70mm, and the Ford 80mm is much much more common now as nearly all the mod motor cars use them. So a wrecked truck with a 4.6, 5.4 or the V10 will give up a 80mm for next to nothing. I think they are also made of a plastic in the latest ones so they run cooler, and are lighter.

Oh and if you are really looking for the most, Ford has a 90mm MAF on the 01-02 Lightnings. These are a common upgrade to the 99-00 version.

Colin: Phat Ride. Me like.

Drac9: goto www.splitsec.com for info.

XT6: The MAF came with the kit. It good for over 500hp (so they say... and is plenty big enough). Jeesh 90mm?

Rage: Rallispec might give some insight on the wireing. Maybe you can use a different Ford MAF to bolt up... if the connector is the same.

Its not the cheapest solution...
but then again...
niether is buying MAF after MAF.

Well, its NOT good to 500HP.

You can tell the difference between a 70mm and a 80mm MAF on a SHO with just a chip (80mm needs one to correct the MAF signal). The 80mm makes 1-2 more HP through the upper powerband. So if its making more power at the 220-230 crank level what will it be doing at nearly twice the power?

I'd see if they would just sell the translation box, then go fishing under the hood of a recent ford truck at the junkyard.

$100 should get one of the 80mm easy if not less, and hopefully you could get the sweet stock airbox with it (big plastic tube heat shield with cone filter stock).

XT6, surely a 70mm MAF is sufficient flow for a forced induction 2.5L.

look at the intake tract after it! without changing that I can't imagine an even larger MAF making any sort of positive affect.

Colin you read my mind.

What size mm is 3.5 inches anyway?

XT6: Regardless... are you saying a forced induced Cobra (approching 500hp) would have to upgrade the MAF?

I was simply making a reference to its durability.

Im just happy it works.

Now how the heck am I going to upgrade the IC piping?!?!
Its welded to the IC!

How large is the inlet to the Turbo? The toyota CT26 used a 2.75" outer diamiter to attach the hose to.

But again, you could likely pick up a fair bit of power with the newer 80mm MAF, if for no other reason the composite body ones are more accurate.

And the 70mm MAF was a very short run item, ford quickly switched to the current 80mm as its "large" MAF. As far as I know the 93 Cobra was the only car with the 70mm MAF.

3.5" = about 89mm.

you are correct and these things are HARD to come by. Tried to get ahold of one for a buddy of mine for his sentra...was told by ford's parts center it was nearly impossible.

Ya, they are also VERY popular as they are a bolt on upgrad for the 89-95 SHO's. no chip needed

I have one somewhere.....
