Are the MAFs from a 90's vette a 'plug and play' if swaped into a Saab t7? If so, what model year vette and/or GM part number.nbndtrain said:Our MAF is good to 500HP. It is the same one as in a 90's vette.
nbndtrain said:Electronics wouldn't work since T7 is totally different. I believe those ends would work, but I don't know whether it is really that much of a bottleneck in our cars compared to the vette. My suggestion is not to mess with the MAF as it's operation is critical to a turbo car.
The GM MAF's are essentially the same as our Saab MAF's. They even have the same Massflow/Hz curve. I plotted the values from the WIS against this chart, and they are an exact match:jperk said:looking around, it seems that the GM LT1 MAF is quite a bit cheaper and easier to find than the Saab T7 MAF. So if they are indeed the exact same thing, then we can save ourselves a few bucks by purchasing the LT1 MAF, which more shops carry. Hell, some of the performance Lt1 MAFs are even cheaper than the Saab branded unit.
I wonder if one could work up a way to make a simple adaptor which wouldn't require splicing the wires. I bet it would sell if you can make it for less than the difference between our MAF and the GM MAF ... or even if you can't, for high HP people, the 4" MAF would be nice.ricot83 said:i HAVE a gm maf on my car right now.. i spliced the wires and wired the new harness, along with a maf... it works exactly the same way... no difference whatsoever...
true story... unless u r nearing 400-450hp i wouldnt even think about changing to a larger one.. the stock innner diameter is something like 3 3/8" or sumthin like htatVigge said:The biggest diameter of those MAFs was 4.65" for lunitics.
The 3" std model will flow plenty for the 99.9% of the users writing to this board...
