The SCT Big Air 90-millimeter mass airflow sensor is available for any V8, Fox Body, or SN95 owner, with a Supercharged and custom-tuned setup that requires a bigger setup than the stock option. Now, this will be able to handle the bigger power that's coming in, thanks to your forced induction setup, and it'll definitely get rid of some pegging issues you may be experiencing. The installation, as you can imagine, extremely straightforward, one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. But we'll touch more about that later on. Now, if you're running that blower setup on your V8, you're probably already aware of that pegging issue I just mentioned. Now, pegging, if you're not fully aware, is basically the limit at which airflow can be read by your stock sensor, which basically puts a cap on how much power your motor can make. Now, with a blower setup, you're obviously shoveling air into your manifold. So it does require a bigger sensor, like this 90-millimeter here, which completely eliminates that pegging issue. Now, the 90-millimeter option, while eliminating that bottleneck, will hold anywhere between 400 to 725 rear-wheel horsepower on a centrifugal blower setup, and up to 825 horsepower on a Roots-style blower. Now, the stock mass airflow sensor has been known to start pegging around the 400 to 425 wheel horsepower range. So obviously, very big differences here. You're pretty much doubling the capacity of what your airflow sensor can hold. So if you're running that kind of power, or you plan on running that kind of power, this is definitely something you want to look into. So just about $200 gets you this sensor here, along with the housing, and in my personal opinion, a very well-worth it price and obviously a very necessary component to your engine bay if you're looking to run that kind of power. If you don't plan on running anywhere kind of north of 400, this is probably not going to be the one for you, as it can start to bog down an engine that doesn't need it. Keep in mind, this was specifically designed for the blower and already tuned applications. Once you have this on your vehicle, you will require a retune, so you want to make sure you're working with your tuner on timing. Because once you get this thing on, you'll have to have a tune ready to go. The install, as you can imagine, extremely straightforward stuff. All you'll need is a ratchet and socket set, and a flathead screwdriver, and about 30 minutes or so in the driveway. I'm definitely giving this one a one out of three wrenches on our difficulty meter. The first thing you want to do is disconnect the wiring harness from the factory sensor, and then use your ratchet and socket set to unbolt the housing from the cold air intake setup. From there, you can swap over to the other side and use a flathead screwdriver to unclamp the housing from the coupler. Remove that completely from the engine bay, swap it out with the SCT one, replace those bolts, plug in the harness again and tighten up the coupler, and you're good to go. If you're the owner of a V8, Fox Body, or SN95, you might want to check out the SCT Big Air 90-millimeter mass airflow sensor/meter, which is available right here at americanmuscle.com.

Works as it should! Needs a tune though afterwards. Luckily I'm a tuner and knew this beforehand.Helpful (1)

I’ve been looking at items that I can add to my Cobra that will give me some hp and won’t break the bank. With the tune from Bama, I defiantly felt the difference between the stock and this one. I am happy with my purchase.Helpful (0)

no more pinging the maf
plugs in as it should just be sure if you plan on running an aftermarket filter to get the big filter bracket or else your aftermarket filter will not work.Helpful (1)

My 03 Cobra is in the 650whp range. I was using an SCT BA2600 MAF Meter and decided to see if upgrading to the BA3000 would help my Terminator breathe better. After adding the new sensor(and a high flow air filter), I calibrated my tune(SCT Livewire TS) for the bigger maf sensor and air/fuel intake. Definitely made a difference! Overall performance and smoothness of acceleration have increased. I highly recommend the Big Air 3000 to those of you with higher power applications like mine or better.Helpful (8)

Big Air MAF Meter
I found the product difficult to install. I was told in the ad that I had to use their tuner. Upon trying to get a tune I was told it wasn't for aftermarket supercharger. So I had to scrap the whole project. I'm looking for a tuner and Maf air meter to tuner my engine.Helpful (10)

Does exactly as it should, works well on my 03 Cobra making 800rwhp. My Tuner suggested the sct maf over other makes due to the easy tunability.Helpful (8)

Just what i needed!
After upgrading to 42lb injectors and a supercharger I needed to find a good enough maf sensor.after doing some research I looked at sct's assortment and chose the sct big air 3000. After installing I noticed that I can finally go w.o.t. In my fox.Helpful (9)
would this be too much for a supercharger making right at 400 rear hp
The SCT BA-3000 MAF supports 400rwhp to 725rwhp on Centrifugal Blower applications, and 400rwhp to 825rwhp with Root Style Blower applications.
4 or 6 pin?
The SCT BA-3000 Big Air 90MM MAF Meter and Sensor utilizes a 6 pin connection.
Is this MAF capable of working with a draw through setup for a centrifugal blower?
The SCT BA-3000 Big Air 90MM MAF Meter is suitable for use as a draw through setup, or a blow through setup.
Will this maf meter work on the V6 mustang?
Physically, this MAF "can" work on any Mustang up to 2004. However, it's only needed/useable on high horsepower Mustangs making 400+ rear wheel horsepower, like a supercharger or turbo.
What size injectors does this maf come set up for? And does it matter If you put smaller injectors in than it's set up for? (I'm gonna run this on an N/A motor for a while until I can get started on my tt setup, and it isn't gonna pull in crazy amounts yet)
That's a great question! Ultimately, a custom tune would be necessary if you are going to be changing your fuel ratio in any way, so I would suggest to speak with your tuner.
Yes, you can place an order for item #38051 which will prompt Bama to create and offer that tune upgrade.
While we have not yet test fit this application so long as it utilizes a 6 pin connection you should be good to go.
The SCT BA-3000 Big Air 90MM MAF Meter / Sensor is only designed for 89-04 V8 Mustangs. We cannot guarantee fitment of this MAF Sensor on an F-150.
