Hey, guys, Stephanie with americanmuscle.com here with a review of the BBK mass air meter that's to be paired with a cold air intake and 24-pound injectors for 1986 to 1993 Mustangs. When it comes to the Fox bodies, whenever you want to start looking at upgrading to get some more performance out of your car, you end up having to turn to the mass air meter almost right away. Unlike most other Mustangs, the Fox body has some preconfigured MAF options that'll work with basic bolt-ons and calibrate your MAF for you to give you a direct bolt-on option that'll require no adjustment or tuning. This BBK mass air meter is a 76-millimeter mass air flow that's calibrated to be used in conjunction with 24-pound fuel injectors, and it comes with a new sensor. BBK makes this 76-millimeter in a billet aluminum one for those that want the aluminum look over the black look that this version offers. And I'll go over the install in more detail later on, but the install for this is easy. It's a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. A 76-millimeter mass air flow is a sizable upgrade for the Fox, and depending on how it's calibrated it can support either 19, 24, or 30-pound injectors. This particular one is calibrated for 24-pound injectors, which means that you will absolutely need to upgrade to 24-pound injectors and have a cold air intake to run this mass air flow. The car is gonna think it'll be getting more fuel from the larger injector and more air from the cold air intake and it's gonna need that support in order to run properly. If you aren't planning on upgrading your injectors, BBK does make a mass air flow that's calibrated for the 19-pound injectors, and that's what you'll need instead. At the end of the day, this isn't a mod that you get for more power, but it's a mod that you pick up to support and tie together more power. I will say that this housing does have a little bit of a different look to it when compared to your other options. You tend to see more billet or cast looking housings. If you're digging the black and you like the different look or if you have a black BBK intake tube that'll match this, great. But if you hate it, BBK does offer that billet aluminum mass air flow that's the exact same other than the appearance. So you can always check that out if you're looking to match your polished intake tube. Just know that it's gonna cost about $20 more. When it comes to price, you can expect to pay right about the $250 mark. It's a little bit higher than the C&L options, but this comes with that new sensor while the C&L option does not. C&L calibrates differently. They give you a housing and they calibrate with a calibration tube instead of the actual sensor, so if you're looking to spend a little less you can always check out the C&L option.The install here is an easy one. You can expect to spend an hour tops on this, and it's a one out of three wrenches on the difficulty meter. Start by unplugging your mass air flow and disconnecting the MAF from the intake system. All you need to do is loosen the clamps and remove the two bolts that hold the housing bracket to the strut tower. You'll swap in your new BBK mass air flow housing, the sensor and all. It's gonna directly replace your stock unit and plug right into your factory wiring. You just need to tighten down your clamps and bolt the new housing into place and that's all it's gonna take.Wrapping things up here with the BBK mass air meter, this is a mass air flow for '86 to '93 Fox bodies that have a cold air intake and 24-pound injectors.

Great, but important side note
My 1988 mustang GT had a square plug from factory. Apparently they switch over later in the year so the plugs they have me did not work. I went to the junkyard and pulled another plug out of another mustang to put it together and it worked.Helpful (1)

Big improvement/easy install
Replaced the old ford 24# MAF in my 93 fox. Replacement was simple quick (obviously) I love the look of it huge improvement over the stock or other aftermarkets I’ve seen. I was pleasantly surprised to actually see some gain in proformance, better response time, harder takeoffs and smoother idle as well. Over all worth the money if you have it.Helpful (4)

Bbk mass air meter
Product is great but americanmuscle does not tell u sbout having to have a diff adapter for the mass air meter had to pay 40 bucks to get a different oneHelpful (7)
I need this cleared up please. As I read this, it states BBK Mass Air Meter for Cold Air Intake (and 24lb Injectors). Therefor, I am lead to believe that this is a kit. If so please let me know. If not, please inform me as well.
This MAF is precalibrated for the use of 24lb injectors and an aftermarket cold air intake. Neither injectors nor a cold air are included with product though. Ordering this, you would receive the Mass Air Meter and an adapter. Hope this clears up any confusion!
I have a 70mm throttle body and a cold air intake with the stock MAF, I notice the throttle hesitates when punching the gas. Would this fix that problem?
If you have 24lb injector this may help with your issue but it is recommended that a tune be written for your car to alow for the best performance possible.
so i have this bbk maf and was wondering would it work in a 94 sn95 mustang with 24lb injectors? I have all the piping to make it work and the connector connects right up, so if it will work that would be great then i wouldn't need to buy the sn95 one or is it programmed differently?
I actally have a bbk ram air intake. Can this product be used with that?
This will work with that intake yes.
I have a 1988 GT California model with a square maf connection plug, will this maf work? If not, where can I purchase an adapter that converts the square plug to an oval? Thank you
This will not come with an adapter to convert and we would advise to reach out directly to a local auto parts store in this case.
Although upgrading to the BBK Mass Air Meter for Cold Air Intake and 24lb Injectors and calibrating it may help, I would suggest having the Mustang inspected by a shop in order to determine the cause of the car running rich.
The BBK Mass Air Meter for Cold Air Intake and 24lb Injectors will be pre-calibrated for 24 lb injectors and an aftermarket cold air intake. The stock injector size would be 19lbs for that year and if you have the stock ones in still and a stock intake your car will run lean.
This BBK Mass Air Meter for Cold Air Intake and 24lb Injectors is only intended for use with 86-93 Mustangs. This is not intended for use on any use on 99-04 Mustangs.
The BBK Mass Air Meter for Cold Air Intake and 24lb Injectors will not come with a 6 pin to 4 pin adapter.
This is specifically designed for an aftermarket cold air intake so this likely would not work with the stock intake pipe.
you can use a 76 mm mass air with the 24 lb sensor and the 24 lb injectors they all work real good together
