    So I can run my stock electronics with this set up? Even if I currently have 19lb injector but, plan on switching to 24 lbs I can select the 19lb injector set up and it will still work with 24 lbs injector later or would I have to buy a different set up. Also what diameter filter does it take? It’s not specified if it’s 3.5 or 4 inch


    • The C&L 76mm MAF Upgrade Kit will include the sample tube which you select. If you upgrade your injectors, you will need to change your sample tube to the proper calibration of the injector that you choose.

    I’m upgrading to 24lb injectors from19lb I have b303 cam and ford maf for 19lb . So your saying I can put this tube on instead of buying a maf for 24lb. Injectors and will accomplish the same thing.


    • This C&L 76mm MAF Upgrade Kit is available in a 24lb option where you would not have to purchase a new MAF.

    I have 92 fox want to upgrade to 24lbs inject. Size. Could i use this housing and just use my stock maf meter sensor? Or do i need to buy aftermarket meter calibrated to 24's?

    I am currently doing the Maf conversion on my 87 gt. I wanted to know if there is a Maf sensor for this housing since it does not come with it, and these apparently come tuned? Which my other question. How is this since there is no electronics? I really dont want to purchase an aftermarket air meter and Maf assembly to remove and put on this one. Any help will be appreciated


    • Gabe, You must utilize a factory MAF sensor. That is why there is no electronics and no ture needed. The sample tube size basically tricks the computer into thinking it's running 19lbs injectors now matter what size you really are using a factory sensor.

    I presently have a 76 mm c n l meter housing that is calibrated for 19 lb., can this be changed to 24 lb. Or do I need a whole new meter housing? Thank you in advance for your consideration, Patrick.


    • When using the C&L 76mm MAF Upgrade Kit (89-93 5.0L, Excludes Cobra). You should be able to just replace it the housing that is calibrated for the different sized injectors. Unfortunately, American Muscle does not carry these replacement housings.

    I installed this on my 89 5.0. Basic bolt on car. Now it is surging and even dying. Would i need to adjust the timing? Before it was running great. I removed battery cable as required to reset computer. But it still surges. Or would re-gapping spark plugs(currently 45 degrees)be something i need to do. Underdrive pulleys, BBK shorty headers, BBK off-road H-pipe, screamin demon coil, 9mm spark plugs, Cervine True ram air hood/kit, smog pump delete, and just re-routed belt. Just want it to run like it did before i replaced factory maf tube. Thanks


    • After installing the C&L 76mm MAF Upgrade Kit (89-93 5.0L, Excludes Cobra), you should not need to make any timing adjustments. From the information that you have supplied, it does sound like a vacuum leak. Make sure that the clamps are tight around the couplers to make sure there is no air loss. If the problem still occurs, please get in contact with one of our Mustang Experts by following the link below. This way we can find out exactly what is going on and get the problem solved right away!

      L 76mm MAF Upgrade Kit (89-93 5.0L

      1988 T Bird. I replaced my 73mm C and L/ stock inlet with the 76mm/ cast elbow. Very simple straight forward install. It took 15 min. I'm using a 65mm Tbody. It was nice an adapter ring came with the kit. I installed this with a TMoss ported GT40 lower, Lunati Cam and TW 170 11R heads. From the first start, it idled perfectly. After letting it idle for 10 min, I free reved it hunting idle. First time out was good. I need to work out some timing/fuel pressure issues. Looks and great! Great price too.

      Nice Unit

      Looks good and installation was pretty easy with a few basic hand tools. You will need to fiddle a little with the silicon piping to make sure everything fits nicely. I painted mine a Satin Black just so it would match the rest of the engine bay. Don't expect to have any noticeable power gains but if you had a stock rubber pipe it does add a little more engine noises. I already had a CAI on the car so I did this more for looks than any power gains.

      Way better idle and throttle response

      I installed a k and n air charger but I was still using the stock parts after the filter. Thought the price was a little high for what you get. Once the item arrived, I realized the quality was superior to what you could buy from the local part store and well worth the cost. Only took about 10 minutes to install and it fit excellent without the need to force it in place like most of the other kits I've installed in the past. This product gave me a super smooth idle and crisp throttle response. I would highly recommend this just for the drivability factor but I did notice some extra get up and go.

      Dont believe the nay-sayers

      If you follow the directions and use the correct sample tube you will have no issues. I ordered this for a gt40 h/i e3 cam motor but my friend had a gold sample tube to try on a pretty stock motor and you notice a difference immediately starting, you can actually hear a little lope now and a small butt dyno gain

      Good upgrade, smoother accleration

      Only (very slight) complication with install was ensuring the larger diameter elbow from MAF housing to throttle body was aligned to make both a smooth transition with clamps and rubber gaskets while also not contacting the strut tower. Good quality piece, felt immediate difference in throttle response and car now struggles to keep traction mid gear (w/low 2.73s) with only this, exhaust, and under drive pulleys

      Great Mass air upgrade!

      I had read alot of mixed reviews on C&l mass air meters. I thought I would give one a try and I am glad I did. My car accelerates smoother and feels like I gaineda few more horses. No idle problems. Got it in three days.
