I had a random thought today and thought Id ask around. Can the MAF be installed in the intake manifold in anyway? Maybe a slot style one. Just curious.
Anything CAN be done. Is it a good idea? Probably not. Back when I was soopernoobsicklesauce and wanted ten meeeeellion HP outta the ZX2 I tried making my own CAI with the MAF oriented differently than stock formation. Lemme tell ya there's a difference in velocity the closer you get to the TB. I'm not exactly how or why, but even if you tip the MAF to, say, 90* from how it's lined-up with Earth, it'll skew readings.
Inside the manifold at part throttle, it is way too turbulent to get an accurate reading. MAP would be used instead.

Have you repped someone helpful today?
Hmm it was just an idea. I guess I didnt take into account the turbulence that would be created in there.
