I have just acquired a 72mm Maf, but there was no plug input or hotwire on it. so just the maf caseing.

Can i use my original plug and hotwires in this Maf?

cheers

I would then put it on a dyno and make sure the air/fuel ratio is good.

Probably a 70mm from an AU. Is it plastic or aluminium?

You need to measure from the narrowest point which is not at either end, but somewhere in the middle.

OEM MAF's are not calibrated for any injector size. Do a search if your not sure what I mean...

Run the electronics from your 55mm MAF if you like.
