i have a 1.8 20v turbo cupra 2005

i see alot of ppl fit lcr mafs as an upgrade, do you just use the housing or the whole maf with a remap?

It's only useful if your upgrading to a hybrid turbo. It won't make any difference to the standard turbo.

I asked this years ago, along with upgrading the injector size, but the ko3's don't max out the maf or the injectors, needs more puff to do that.

But if you did then you would need a 3 inch maf, thats the whole unit, don't think it can come apart. Then you would need a larger turbo inlet pipe to suit and a larger diameter air box or branded air filter.

When upgrading the MAF due to fitting a bigger turbo (like a hybrid) you fit the sensor from your car (150/180bhp MAF (2.5")) into a LCR/TT/S3 MAF tube (3").

To connect to tip, you can either try to stretch on a standard Forge TIP (extremely difficult), or get a reducer to suit.

adzer - is your current MAF saturated with airflow?

If the answer is I don't know, then leave it alone.

If it's not, leave it alone.

********************************

my original maf is ****ed, so my traction control no longer works and cars just backfiring on gear change.

i have a new lcr maf, all i need to know is if i can use the maf and have the car mapped or if i DO need to use the sensor from the original maf.
