    Review & Install Video

    Hey, guys. It's Joe from AmericanMuscle. And today, we're gonna be taking a closer look at the C&L Street Performance Slot-Style MAF Airflow Meter or Sensor Calibrated, fitting all '11 to '14 GTs. Now this is gonna be a great option for the Coyote owner out there looking to get a little bit more horsepower from the extra air brought in by some other bolt-ons.So in order for us to understand what the C&L MAF sensor is gonna do for your Mustang, we have to understand the problem with the factory MAF sensor. So that factory sensor, it's designed to work around the other stock components. I'm talking the intake, intake tube, throttle body, intake manifold injectors, stuff like that is all designed to work together as one cohesive unit. However, I'm willing to bet if you're watching this video, your Mustang is probably not stock, you probably have some components that are going to up the amount of air going through your engine, I'm talking cold air intakes, intake manifolds, throttle bodies, maybe even forced induction and hopefully you have some injectors to go along with that. Now if you are in that scenario, you're pushing a lot more air into your Coyote motor and you can sometimes max out or what's commonly referred to as peg out your mass airflow sensor. Now that is going to be a bad thing to do, that extra air is just being wasted, and even worse, it can sometimes go into your combustion chamber leading out that air-fuel ratio which can lead to very, very bad things.This is where our C&L mass airflow sensor comes into place because this has a much higher limit than the factory sensor allowing it to read that extra air, it's going to send a higher signal to your PCM, which was then gonna compensate with more fuel in the combustion chamber to keep that air-fuel ratio exactly where it needs to be and that is where some horsepower will hopefully come from. C&L saw about 10 to 18 horsepower with this little guy right here, now that is on their dyno with their car, but suffice to say, the gains can be there if you're in that scenario.This thing has pretty good reviews as well as of late 2019 currently sitting at around 4.6 out of 5 stars with about 58 reviews. So a lot of people are noticing a difference in the driving aspects of their Mustang. Again, you have those other bolt-ons, something like this could be a huge benefit. You might see a little bit of horsepower, you might see a little bit of throttle response, but it'll be a shame to have a factory mass airflow sensor bottleneck your Coyote's power.Another great feature about this is it features that factory slot-style, so this is gonna be a direct replacement, reusing that factory hardware and dropping right in with the factory electrical harness. No modification and no tuning required in order to run something like this. Pricing for the C&L MAF sensor gonna drop in right around 275 bucks, which might seem a little bit steep, but again, if you have those other bolt-ons, it really would be a shame to limit your Coyote's power with something as simple as a mass airflow sensor pegging out. So this is a good buy if you're in that bolt-on scenario and you're looking to pick up just a little bit more horsepower.The install for this is going to be really, really easy, one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter for sure. At most, this should take you about 5 to 15 minutes in the driveway with nothing but some basic hand tools. We're gonna be reusing the factory hardware and again, no tune is required to run this guy, so without any further ado, let me show you what tools you might need and then how it's done.The only tool we use for our install will include this Phillips head screwdriver, but I'm pretty sure the factory bolts will require a T15 Torx bit. Like I said, this is gonna be really, really simple. Grab that Phillips head screwdriver, we're just gonna loosen up the two screws that hold in our factory MAF sensor then we can unplug it and replace it with our new one.Now as we're loosening up these bad boys you want to go nice and slow, really do not want to lose this hardware. This one is a little bit tougher to get at with this plastic shroud here, depending on your screwdriver you might have to move that. So now we have our sensor out, all we're gonna do is flip that bad boy over here, it's a red release tab right there. Pull that out, push down, and it should be able to unplug it and replace with our new one.So now that we have our factory MAF sensor uninstalled, I figured now would be the perfect time to sit it down next to our new C&L sensor and point out some key differences between the two. Now visually, they're pretty much the same exact thing. The CNL is a drop-in replacement. One difference I did notice is this is painted black, you got the C&L logo on there but once this is installed, you're never gonna see it. So basically the same exact thing in terms of what the build is, but again, that C&L is a huge upgrade in terms of how much air this can read.If you do have those mods that are going to allow your Mustang to take in more air, this is going to be able to read that while the factory one would peg again or max out. And this is going to allow your PCM to compensate by adding more fuel, keeping the air-fuel ratio right where it needs to be therefore netting the most amount of horsepower possible.So the install for our C&L is just gonna be the reverse of our factory uninstall here. So we're gonna grab our screws, take our new C&L over to our Mustang and drop this right in place. So when you drop this in you want to make sure that this is the correct way. Do not drop it in with the lettering up, you could see our airflow arrow is backwards like that, you actually want to flip this over to the blank side and install that face up like so. Then we can take our two screws and secure that to the intake tube.The last thing we're gonna have to do here is actually plug the thing in. That is going to click on like so. And then on the underside, we can secure it by flipping back that red latch. Guys, that is gonna do it for me, it's also gonna do it for the C&L Street Performance Slot-Style Mass Airflow Meter or Sensor Calibrated, fitting all '11 to '14 GTs. As always, thank you guys so much for watching. Subscribe for more like this one. Keep it right here at AmericanMuscle for all things Mustang.

    Calibrated for Performance. Increasing the airflow into your Mustang's 5.0-liter Coyote engine is key to making more power, but the stock Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor could be holding you back from making big power numbers. Put simply a MAF Sensor is designed to read the volume of air flowing into your engine. The problem is that the factory MAF Sensor is limited to how much air it can actually read and will "peg" due to increased air flow. C&L's MAF Sensor has been custom calibrated and scaled to accurately read this higher volume of air created by aftermarket bolt-on's such as cold air intakes and force inducted setups to ensure peak performance without pegging.

    Performance and Power. With an unmistakable improvement in airflow, when compared to the stock sensor, you can expect to see increases of 10 to 18 horsepower with an increase in performance starting at 2000 rpm's all the way to red line. By upgrading to a C&L Performance Calibrated MAF Sensor you will not only see an improvement in performance and power, but you will also see an increase in throttle response and fuel mileage.

    Plug-N-Play Installation. Engineered to be a direct fit plug-n-play replacement for the original stock sensor this C&L Slot-Style MAF Meter installs with just basic hand tools. No extra modifications are required for an easy 15 minute installation. All necessary parts and instructions are included.

    Application. This C&L Street Performance Slot-Style MAF Sensor Meter is specifically designed to fit 2011 to 2014 GT and BOSS Mustang models equipped with the Coyote 5.0L 4 valve V8 engine.

        So far nobody has answered my question. I had asked if I could use the C L performance MAF in my setup. I have a 2014 Mustang GT with a Bama performance tune (93 octane), an 85mm throttle body and an Airaid Race CAI.

        • This will work with your set up yes.

        Hi. I have a 2012 Boss 302. I have an Airaid CAI with the venturi tube installed and factory calibration (Track Key is activated.) Will this allow me to remove the venturi tube without having the car tuned? If not is it worth purchasing? ' Thanks

        • The C&L Street Performance Slot-Style MAF Meter will not allow you to remove the venturi tube. This will provide performance gains over 2000Rpm.

        I have a C L street CAI. I ha a BAMA custom performance tune done after I installed the CAI. Is this some thing that would add to that or did the BAMA tune make the necessary change to account for the added air flow? Thanks, JeffB

        • The C&L Street Performance Slot-Style MAF Meter will not require any changes to your tune.

            Was having issues for about 3 weeks with bucking and jerking while cruising, I could not figure it out, I took it out and replaced it back with stock MAF and running perfect again.

            Not much bang for the buck

            I have the FMS PowerPack/tuner, 3:55 gears, CAI and Perf Exhaust and JMS Throttle Boost that is AWESOME! I got this piece to pick up the dead spot around 1800-2500rpm and it helps a little but actually makes the car feel slower/weaker by smoothing that out. I may put the stock piece back in after a few weeks. It was more fun driving with the surge in the 2-3 shift.

            A Must Have for Boss 302 Intake

            I honestly don't know how I went so long without upgrading the MAF after installing the Boss intake and 90MM TB. Everything ran pretty well, but something just seemed.... off. I popped this little dude in and suddenly saw the error of my ways. Smoother idle, less hesitation in lower RPM range, and smooth as butter over 5500RPM. Even picked up 1MPG over the past month. The stock MAF "works", but this one just works better.

            Great Product!

            One of the easiest mods you will ever do.....maybe THE easiest. My biggest issue with the 5.0 is throttle response. So far I added a BAMA 93 tune, C and L intake, and now this and these have done wonders for my coyote's responsiveness!!

            Mixed feelings

            Easy install and noticeable difference immediately. Smoother idle and I think it even improved the exhaust note. Price however removes one star. Seems a little steep for the gains Now the biggest problem, this MAF is not supported by the AM Tunes For Life program. Their exact words:. "I do apologize but we do not tune the CandL MAF as the stock MAF reads and accepts tuning better". There you have it from the expert... Stock MAF is superior to this one. Save the $300 for another mod.

            C L slot style MAF Sensor

            My part arrived in a brown envelope. The corners of the part were beginning to pierce through the brown envelope. Packaging should have been In a box considering the price! I Installed the part in my 2014 GT in about 1/2 an hour. Fit was good. I bought this part to support other mods , including Airaid CAI, BBK 85mm throttle body, Bama tune, Borla exhaust and 3.73 gears! I felt there was some performance gain above 2,000 rpm, but nothing dramatic. So I would rate it as good, but not great. Part is pricy, I feel it should be about 1/2 the cost!!!

            MAF Replacement

            Purchased this to add to the KandN cold air intake and the BBK 85mm T/B I installed. I will say it has improved the cars idle and as for power I will see when I put my tune back in the car. Install was very easy.

            improved

            I installed this at the same time I installed a CAI. My 2013 GT has the ford performance cal tune. Before the MAF and CAI my car would hesitate at 4000 rpm and under. My car now has slight hesitation below 3000 rpm and I notice increased acceleration over 4000 rpm. My testing was done in 30-40 degree weather so the results may be different when the temps warm. Also keep in mind that a CAI was installed at the same time . This may and probably has a positive effect on my results

            So I have a boss 302 setup with. 90 ford racing TB and a CAI as well as some other bolt on mods. I started to notice that my engine felt like it was starving for air and wasn’t idling as smooth as it used to. I read the reviews for this product and decided to give it a try. After install all my issues were fixed and I could notice that extra little kick. This product is a little pricey which is the reason for the 4 star but i highly recommend it.

            Air flow

            First let me start off by saying that i didn't think this was for me, even though all of my mods are for air flow, starting with the jlt cai the bbk 85mm tb the jba 3"down and h pipe cat delete flowing through the GT 500 catback ! The product kept mentioning better throttle response now that peaked my interest, every since i installed the cai my car always takes a big gulp of air when I hit the gas pedal, just revving it or taking off slowly it's been doing this since 2014 i thought it was a natural sound for Cold air intakes ! But since I installed the candl mass air flow sensor it doesn't do that anymore the airs already there,i can drive out of my driveway without pressing the gas just slowly easing off the clutch, and going 80 on the freeway i barely press the pedal and it well maintain that speed,so it's gonna be great for gas mileage, and am sending up white smoke from my nitto 305s so boys and girls if you got these mods and your on the fence about it ? Climb on over! more air more power
