Suck through to blow through

Hey guys, considering switching my suck through setup to a blow through setup when I do some work on the car this spring/summer. Im trying to remember what all I would need to make the blow through work.

-Mafia
-3in maf tube
-rework piping obviously
-tune

Am I forgetting anything? Im trying to make a price list to see what all im going to do.

Thanks

I am told you will not need the mafia until about 250whp give or take.

And after a quick look at my MTF (which is only tuned to about 780 counts), using 10bhp per lb/min of air, you will hit about 280-300 crank hp before pegging a 3" maf.

Ok thanks guys. I have something in the works and id like to hit 280-300 with my new setup. Need to upgrade my fuel system first but I like to try to build everything once so I can hit my final goals without redoing stuff. I only wish i had taken this approach the first time i did this.

Tom and I both just said, stock maf in a 3" tube, gets you to ~280.
