You only need a MAFia or some kind of MAF extender if you are pegging or close to pegging out your MAF.. Since your making some ponies.. I take it you have some kind of engine management like the SCT PRP.. If so you can datalog your MAF AD Counts during a WOT pull and see if they get anywhere near 980-1000 counts.. if so.. It would be wise to get one.. and then you will need to retune your car.

^^In most cases from what I've seen, setting 3 works well. And yeah, the zetec MAF pegs at 1023 counts (IIRC) so if you're anywhere near there you definitely need one. I was pegging mine at 200-225whp.
