I was looking at a bigger mass air meter for my car, posibly a 73 mm, is it worth the money?

I just put a 76mm C&L on my car a week ago and am very pleased. I was a little shocked that it no longer dies on the first crank in the morning. It used to hunt for about 5 seconds or die. The only codes I have found related to that is the EGR being out of voltage range.

On a stock car with no mods it is not likely to have any effect. On my car I have noticed a big help down low and up high in the rpm band. I have equal length headers and an off road h-pipe. From your web page it looks as if your car is similar to mine. The only difference is the mufflers. Yours are better in my opinion. I like the magnaflow. I am looking into borlas right now. I hope to order them before the end of the month. I am tired of the "drone" that flowmasters make. I love the sound, but I will save that for my future 66 fastback .

I picked up the 76mm mass air meter for $120 with a set of 19lb injectors included. I also have an extra 19lb sample tube that came with it. My motor is stock from throttle body to oil pan and I could tell a good bit of difference in idle quality and power. overall the car runs smoother. If you get the 73mm make sure to use the stock air box and panel filter. C&L recommends it. There are some troubles with the aftermarket cold air kits causing too much scavenging in the intake tube causing the meter to not read correctly mainly because of the turning radius the air takes in the bends. This problem is a try it and see situation. Some people have problems, others do not.

the other factor is gears. I have 3.73's and it looks as if you do too. In my own personal experience I believe you will notice a difference in the stock meter vs. the 73mm.

You don't have to get the 76, the 73 would work just fine. Unless you are planning on major modifications...i.e. stroking the engine out. the 73 will work fine for a mostly stock motor. Also I used the stock elbow flow tube. Getting that thing to go around the outer part of the housing was a chore. It is on there to stay until it cracks or breaks as far as I am concerned. Do some research and talk to some people locally to see what they are running.

OH YEAH!!! Welcome Back!!!
