What brand of Mass Air Meter should i run

i have a 351w with a 76mm turbo setup and i am finishing up buying the last few items i am down to the mass air meter and throttle body. What do you guys suggest? Some say the sct 5000 blow thru meter is the best any info on what you guys are running, would help before i buy one and am not happy. And what size throttle body and brand are you guys having good success with? I was told to go with a 90mm throttle body or will a 80mm work thanks for the help cant wait to get it done.

I run the 3" PMAS Pro Tube w/ no complaints along w/ a 90mm Accufab TB. A guy on TM.com has been high 5's w/ a 65mm TB so probably not all that crucial.

SCT makes great stuff !! never herd anything bad. its just not plug and play like PMAS and you MUST have a tune for it to even idle/run.


what part of FL?? realstreet in Orlando is a real good shop !! Jay does great work.

bout 1 1/2hrs from orlando. that is jay that use to work at lamotta's correct? jake lamotta built my last two cars but decided to go out on my own this time. I plan on having a shop tune and dyno the car that is a guarantee. I think i want to go with the sct because of tunability and they are located here in florida in case of problems. Is anybody running there meters if so which do you recommend i am looking for around 750rwhp on pump and close to 1000 rwhp on race.

correct.. jake is still in town too. Both do good work. my buddy kris introduced me to both of them and both are really nice guys that do good work.

SCT is the way to go for the higher HP cars. PMAS is for us low HP guys that usually run un tuned (like me lol)
