MAF Install Coming up short


To many cars and motorcycles
Oct 30, 2006
Started to install a new LS MAF in my '87. Had been running TinMan Air intake to the stock MAF and a hard tube to the turbo. When I put on the new adapters and new MAF I come up short. The Stock MAF is 5 1/4" long and the new LS is 3 3/4 long. The adapters are a different lengths also. I have everything pulled as far out as possible. Because the Tinman goes through the core support you can't pull it back to take up the slack. All would be good if the adapters were longer. Anyone have this trouble. Thought this was going to be quick and easy..... Never is lol.
