Some guy totaled his 96 Camaro and offered to sell me his 52mm TB and a Granatelli MAF for $200. I know nothing about the MAF though.


Thanks for any help

Yes it will work, but you'll need a reprogram for the PCM, unless you like your tranny toasted. Talk to PCMFORLESS.COM for the details.

Keep us posted!

Yeah-I was speaking to a member at a local cruise night and he had said you can use the F-body mass airflow which is 3 1/2 in's.The B-body uses a 3in-I'm not sure about the 52mm on a stock engine though.Someone else will chime in.That's a great price.Ed

Here's what ya should do:

1) Buy the package

2) Sell the Granatelli to some poor sucker on Ebay for like $150...

3) Buy an F-body MAF used for $50

You've now spend a total of $100 for an upgrade of both your MAF -and- throttle body... which is a helluva deal...

BOTH mods will require PCM reprogramming though. www.pcmforless.com for that.

I thought I would just buy both and sell the MAF on ebay (he would not seperate). Is the Granatelli any good or is it just a look cool do nothing mod?

One other question what do you use to go to a 3.5 MAF? 3.5 filter and intake, but is there a 3.5 TB boot?


Thanks Guys
for all the help

What performance gain do you get from going to a F-body MAF? Does it give you some HP, accelerate better, or just better overall performance?

Thanks,

Under 300RWHP, likely no gain at all... past 300 you're approaching the limits of the 3" MAF to accurately measure air, hence time to go to the larger F-body one, which should be sufficient for just about any NA LT1 out there.

I agree, however.....I have noticed better throttle response with the larger MAF. Now I did not descreen the stock B-Body unit so perhaps it would have been the same, but I can tell you first hand the SOP feeling was simply that the larger MAF was a better response.

After the Herter program, it was even better and the cat-back didn't hurt either! ;)

OK is the Granatelli junk or something?

Also what is needed to convert to a 3.5 MAF?


Thank

I would have to second Knightshade's plan.

I have no personal experience with the Granatelli but I have read and been told by persons using them that there was little or no HP increase with them over the 3.5 inch on a moderate engine. They are also not supplied with MAF tables and are inconsistent in that respect.
The nice thing about the "F" is it is a known quantity and you just need to plug in the "F" car tables and you are set.
Since your are a PCMFORLESS customer, the "F" MAF is as simple as "hey Brian I changed to a "F" body MAF"

I know at least one person who traced drivability troubles to a Granatelli MAF, as stated above the calibrations for it are unknown, the stock F-body tables are known. Im my sig it says ZO6 MAF and wish I had just gone with the f-body piece. It is about the same size but will read less flow in this application(due to pcm differences), but is available new for less money than a new f-body MAF.
