Default Silicone coupler for MAF

Hello all,

I've done a lot of searching here and I just can't seem to find the answer I'm looking for. I've got 2.5" intake pipes to go to the turbo, but the standard 2.5 coupler doesn't fit on the MAF (94... I believe it's a MAF, right?). Does anyone know if I need a 2.75" to 2.5" transition, or a 3" to 2.5" transition? Thanks for your help.

Tony

Yes, you need 2.75-to-whatever pipe size you choose. If you need them, I have two blue 2.75 to 2.5 reducers (You need one for filter to MAF and one MAF out to turbo) from siliconeintakes.com. New, unused parts as I ordered them and then went from using MAF to MAP before I installed everything.

Pipe Reducer

$15 shipped for the pair. PM me if interested.

Nope. Truth is, you've gone through the trouble of setting up your own photobucket account with what I'm sure is dozens of these stupid little pictures, so that you can get a reaction like "OH, Snap!". Do realize that you could have answered "A 2.75" to 2.5" reducer would work" with a lot less effort. But instead you "try" to make people look stupid, when in the end, all you do is look like a jerk. You're not a jerk, are you?

Thanks for the info Stein. I'll PM you shortly.

No, I didn't think of that. What I did think was that you were to lazy to do your home work before hand. If you knew you wanted to order one you could have measured it last night. I work all day long too but I don't need anyone holding my hand.

And no I didn't realize that I could have spoon fed you the answer because truth is I would have had to measure one myself to know.

So in the end I guess I am just a jerk.

with a little dielectric grease on the MAF the 2.5 fit . I accidentally forgot to order the transition hose. Hose Techniques has 2.5 to 2.75 in 90* as well if need.
