That does NOT include the MAF from the 4.0L Ranger. It is ONLY the MAF from the 2.3L/2.5L/3.0L.

The 4.0L has a different transfer function and will screw up your AFR.

Benefits: Like putting on the 70mm MAF.

Cons: No calibration. It'll feel better, but it's not calibrated for our car.

Thanks Tom.

Until I know something concrete, I won't bother.
I was hoping for an inexpensive "Junkyard Swap".

I appreciate the advice.

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Tom,
Sorry I didn't say that the Ranger MAF was phisically the same. The only thing I said was that on my Ford MAF Voltage to Airflow Chart the Ranger 2.3L, 2.5L, and 3.0L MAF had the same transfer function as the Focus. The 4.0L Ranger MAF has a completly different transfer function.

And from the drawings that I have for the connectors the Focus and Ranger connectors look the same. The IAT and SIG RTN pins are reversed, but that shouldn't matter.

Just checked the Voltage to Mass Air Flow Conversion chart again. The Focus, 2.0L Escort 2v, 3.0L 2V Taurus, 3.0L Flexible Fuel Taurus, and 2.3L/2.5L/3.0L Ranger ALL share the same "Transfer Function". Even though they may have different looking MAF sensors.

FYI

I have a Ford Ranger 3.0 MAF and dyno tested gave me 10whp more than the stock unit. I don't know why. I haven't had any problems yet and I've been running it for more than 6 months now. The only down side is that there is more fuel consumption.

Hope this helps,

Miguel

Blue:

So why is it that the Ranger MAF gave such a huge improvement on my car. It feels it accelarates better and it sounds richer.

Regards,

Miguel

<font size="2" face="Verdana, Arial">Did you update your sign recently? With the MAF adding 10whp and you still only @ 123hp/120tq w/ all those mod?

The MAF for the 4.0L Ranger is NOT EVEN close and shouldn't be used.

Yup that's why I have another post that says need help tuning. I'm down to two things, my chip and my cam gear tuning. I need help with that. Any advice will be welcomed, although I have been to the dyno 3 times each time I improve but not to what I expect.

Regards,

Miguel
