Need help choosing a maf for turbo car

Well I finally got my hands on a notch. It needs some work and its a lot of new stuff to learn for me. Anyway its a 306 with 42 lb injectors and a cartech turbo kit with I believe a 70mm ITS turbo. When I got it it had a draw through lightning maf and the bov open to atmosphere. I know I need to change things around and the car hardly ran before.

I been reading and this is what I am planning on doing. I am going to mount the bov near the turbo and get a blow through maf and mount it in the passenger side fender near the throttle body. What maf do you guys recomend? I was thinking the PMAS pro tube 3in

Here is a small problem though. The piping is 2.5 inch. The maf is 3 inch would it be affected if I stepped up the piping to 3 inch near the maf then back down to 2.5 inch after? I don't know if that will disrupt the air flow causing the car to run weird.

Any help or recommendations would be appreciated.

im using a PMAS HPX slot meter in a 3.5" tube. Havnt had a chance to drive the car yet. I had a tuning date setup yesterday but it got cancelled. Using an SCT chip. You can also purchase purchase a 3" or 3.5" housing to install inside of your existing tubing.
