Matching maf?

You can run anything, whether it will safely is another story

If you think having the wrong injectors installed is no big deal, i dont know what to tell ya.

A "matched" MAF is just a real poor way to get by with mismatched parts. The injectors are programmed wrong in the computer, so they add a wrong calibration MAF meter to make the engine "think" the air mass is less than it really is. The computer then turns the injectors down to a shorter duty cycle, because the computer thinks the engine is flowing less air.

This sorta works when the injector change is small, because the Ford computer can learn a small correction and store it in the KAM.

You probably have some idea from Internet that the MAF is "matched" to injectors, and that all anyone has to do is buy a magically matched MAF meter. But that makes the LOAD tables and everything else relying on LOAD goes bad, including timing.

It might kind of work out OK for you, or you might pop the engine. It would all depend on your luck. You are probably better off to NOT change the MAF and use the MAF the chip is for, if they tuned it correctly.
