hi, now has come the time to fit the Pro M maf & 24's...

i dummy fitted the maf today & the only way i figure it'll fit is with a custom airbox or shielding. Id have to remove the stock airbox.
this is because the maf has a huge 6'' K & N pod fitted to it. took the pod off and the maf certainly didnt fit to the airbox where the s**t maf is now.

can i apply like the BA XR8's do with the shielded pod? wat sort of material could i use or is there a company that could fit this up for me?
the maf is a 77mm unit.

any ideas peoplesor opinions?

thanks

I cut my EF one to fit an 80mm vortech no worries (for rego purposes),

should be able to enlarge the hole enough to fit the end of a pro-M in.

got the injectors and pro m off coral for around $350 shipped.

so u reakon just make the original hole in the airbox larger to accomodate the larger MAF?
might have a go, it'll save dramas of buying or making a new box...
did u have anything inbetween the maf and airbox, like a rubber gasket of some sort AXR88U?

Make your own box to seal the Pro-M filter from engine heat. That MAF works best when used with it's original filter.

My maf is a flangless one to suit a pod. Just made to hole very neat & had a tight fit. When the hole size is close, try the maf up against it and take little bits at a time out of the lid.
I was'nt that fuss about sealing it up with anything as it is a really good fit.

I used one of those little die grinders to do it.

ok, i'll have a go at this and seal the pod in the airbox. see how i go. mite get my mate to fit the injectors and then get it on the dyno to tune the unichip.

and there's no real difference as im using the 94-95 pro m maf and injectors yes?

cheers guys
