There's no "performance" MAFs for our cars. For vehicles that have a MAF that is part of the intake tract (as in, it has it's own tube), the performance MAFs are just larger diameter, because a MAF is a MAF as far as the sensor goes.

So yeah, for Cobalts there's no performance MAF - it just bolts into the intake tract...

yeah i understand that a maf sensor is a maf sensor

this may be a dumb question as i havent pulled out my maf sensor in a few months but is it possible that this aftermarket sensor just lets more air through as it doesnt block as much airflow as the stock sensor?

i have had the jet performance MAF sensor in my car for 50k miles no problems its beneficial for 2.2 going NA. somehow allows you to use a larger throttle body without tuning for it the JEt performance sensor allows for 40% more air flow which is why if you want a large TB you have to tune for it the computer cant accomodate for the extra air flow...the jet sensor, according to them, allows for the larger air flow.

if you dont have a na build or something with a larger TB it, according to them, doesnt do anything

LOL wut.

I HIGHLY doubt your using a 2.4 throttle body on your car without a re-tune...and even if you are I bet it is running leaner than hell...which is probably why you think it runs good.

How our MAFs are designed, they don't block air...you really can't have more airflow...
