Hey Brandon. Maybe one of the SFT members could help with the install. Several of us are pretty handy. I am a mechanic/parts manager in Charlotte for a major trucking company. By the way, there is a place in Charlotte on Statesville rd. called Custom Hydraulics. They can help if you need any fittings for your lines . Mike is the boss there and he is pretty cool. Let me know if I can help.

you should be able to use the stock MAF in a larger pipe with the MAia.
BTW: I believe that Mcnewsautomotive sells the mafia for 149.00 + shipping, that's probably where i'm getting mine. best price I've seen so far.
good luck on your build, there's alot of good info. in sporadics thread too.
