How to tell if I have a Strong M.A.F Vs. A weak M.A.F

Any consensus from everyone regarding where to get the best price for ordering a strong MAF?

The weak MAF typically does not start acting up until it starts getting hit with increased air flow. Just an air intake usually won't set it off but add a scoop and/or a ported throttle body and you will likely see some sluggishness, surging and bucking.

One of the cai makers discovered the lack of expected performance... tracked it down to the maf type. I have a spare strong one.... if anyone is interested... pm me

Ok, so lets ignore all vendors for a minute. If i went to my local dealer to pay dealer price there is a chance i may get a weak MAF sensor? or the stronger MAF? These weak MAF are still on the shelves?
