Jet Performance MAF Sensor - Thoughts??

I saw on ebay that Jet Performance has come out with a MAF sensor for the camaro ss. Are these safe to run, worth the money, is there any real benefits. Just wondering if anyone has had any experience with these. Thanks.

You are better off just using teh stock sensor, and tunign the car properly. That is the way it was on the 4th Gen, and I will keep with it on the 5th gen.

its the best power adder ever invented! I heard those gt500 guys put one of these in with a pulley swap and they are able to lay down burning strips of rubber allowing them to get back to the future.

OK, OK...Well I am going to give it a try anyway...I will put it on a Dyno with the Stock and then the Jet MAF and see if it makes any difference. I got the Jet in preparation for a supercharger.

that last sentance is why you should not mess with an aftermarket MAF.

on a purely stock application, you will probably see some added power from swapping mafs, but as you start adding modifications, aftermarket mafs become wasted paperweights. and they are a pain to tune with as well. stick with stock. it will handle the power

Is the MAF sensor the electrical connector that plugs into the air tube portion of the stock air intake on the LS3? Sorry for the ignorance here and apreciate the education.

the MAF (Mass AirFlow) sensor is inside the intake tube. mass airflow sensors use electrical current to measure airflow. The sensing element, which is either a platinum wire (hot wire) or nickel foil grid (hot film), is heated electrically to keep it a certain number of degrees hotter than the incoming air. In the case of hot film MAFs, the grid is heated to 75 degrees C. above incoming ambient air temperature. With the hot wire sensors, the wire is heated to 100 degrees C. above ambient temperature. As air flows past the sensing element, it cools the element and increases the current needed to keep the element hot. Because the cooling effect varies directly with the temperature, density and humidity of the incoming air, the amount of current needed to keep the element hot is directly proportional to the air "mass" entering the engine.
