z32 maf adapter
I am going to have the piping redone on the car and I really want to get a new maf adapter. Do most guys here just cut off the plastic and slide the hose coupler right onto the maf, or do you guys use a adapter?

I have an adapter now, but it is junk and I really want something simple and nice.

i use a metal adaptor with the o ring between the mafs and the adaptor

Where did you get your adapter? I have one now, but it is ghetto.

oem a vendor on here makes a nice piece. Also you can do like you said and cut off the tabs

I always cut the tabs off and shape it nice. It will never leak.

I use to use a metel z32 maf adapter which I still if if you need it. I ended up getting a apexi filter that bolts right up to the maf. NO Adapter needed, even though it comes with one. I think you can order it without it.

If you're running it as a blow through i would just cut the tabs. Those adapters are not designed to be used as a blow through, they might work under low boost conditions but could leak under high boost conditions.

Just cut the tabs off Coheed, I have done this on every single setup ive done with a Z32 or similar maf. Much easier, It fits a 3" coupler perfectly, and if you cut it good it will have a nice lipped end so that you have no worries of it coming off. Ive yet to have a coupler pop off my maf under 30+psi of boost.

Cheaper, easier, and way better looking.

Thank you ashton, you give me hope. I think I'll try that. Seen it done a few times, but not in a while.
